Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash. Could these lives have been saved?

Broken Harts, a new podcast from Glamour and HowStuffWorks, investigates this question with more than 30 never-before-heard interviews. Cohosts and Glamour editors Justine Harman and Elisabeth Egan and reporter Lauren Smiley follow the family’s journey from South Dakota through Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington, and finally to that 100-foot cliff in California.

Not bad.

Not bad. Binged this over the weekend. The narration irritated me at times. The actual story is sickening and angered me. It explores various social issues which might be one of the reasons this dreadful case of neglect, abuse and murder is relatively unheard of. Would like to see this story told with more of a focus on the children.

Fast forward

People get upset with the ad breaks - which are how these free podcast can exist. But it’s an easy fix - listen on your I phone, the ads are usually 30 seconds and you can fast forward past them.

Interesting story but too much disruptive advertising

Was very interested in this Podcast but the story was constantly and annoying interrupted by advertising for Over My Dead Body podcast. It was completely disruptive and I eventually gave up trying to listen. Very disappointing.
