It’s meant to be her big break: the moment she becomes the superstar she was born to be. But this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact that Miriam is trans. A new six-ep...

There are many references in interviews with Keyes, his friends and family, and in his favorite media to car accidents. An alleged car accident out of the late 90s in Washington state that makes no sense whatsoever, seems to line up in quite a few ways with Israel Keyes. Josh and French head down to Morton, Washington to investigate. And a book found in Israel Keyes's shed sheds light on a lot of his known criminal behavior.

Veteran journalist Joe Nocera’s neighbor in the Hamptons was a therapist named Ike. Ike counted celebrities and Manhattan elites as his patients. He’d host star-studded parties at his eccentric vacation house. But one summer, Joe discovered that Ike was gone and everything he’d thought he’d known about his neighbor -- and the house next door -- was wrong. From Wondery, the company behind Dirty John and Dr. Death, and Bloomberg, “Th...

It’s one of the most haunting murder cases you’ll ever hear about, and it takes place in a small town in Israel. Tair Rada was only 13-years-old when her body was found inside a locked bathroom stall. She was viciously murdered during a school day, and yet no one saw or heard a thing. The police arrested the janitor, Roman Zadorov, and he eventually confessed, but this was far from being the end of it. Based on the hit true-crime s...

A first look into the disappearance of Karen Adams involves media disparities among the missing, multiple jurisdictions, cell towers and pings, alleged investigation stonewalling, and some very suspicious behavior from Keyes.

In 2018, I produced a series of episodes about an HIV epidemic in Austin, Indiana. This interlude in that series is my own personal story. It was recorded in a single take, with minimal editing. I was significantly more anxious sharing it this time than I was originally. The upside is it feels so far away, because life is so much better now.

Five years ago today, I released my very first podcast episode. To celebrate the milestone, every few weeks during the hiatus, I'll be sharing some of my favorite episodes I've produced.
"Luna the Whale" was the 9th episode from my first podcast, Our Americana. It premiered back in 2016, and while my tech and editing abilities have evolved, the story is as powerful and heartfelt as ever.
