When April Balascio was 40 years old, something she’d feared for decades was finally proven true. Her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, really was a murderer. The Clearing is about what came after April called a detective in 2009 to tell him about her suspicions — a call that led to her father’s arrest and eventual conviction on multiple murders — and tracks the emotional journey as she and host Josh Dean dig back into her childhood, unravel the truth of her father’s life, and overturn a viral online narrative that had turned Edward Wayne Edwards into a kind of serial killer caricature. Produced by Pineapple Street Studios in association with Gimlet.

Investigative Research 10/10
What an a heart wrenching amazing story and well presented podcast. Highly recommend.
Interesting but the music..
Very interesting podcast, but the music is incredibly distracting, so tacky and almost laughable. It kind of took away from the story
I really liked it but...
I feel like it just stopped randomly
