A true crime podcast that balances crime and murder with semi-related nonsense from the Back Porch.
Ep.034 - Humphrey and Laney
Domestic violence is no joke. It seems that every local news station around the country reports this kind of crime all too often. This week we take a look at the number of lives ruined by the selfish, murderous act of one person.
Ep.033 - Robert Gleason - Killing for Death
We all make mistakes. But sadly, some people are so depressed and devastated by their mistakes, that they consider suicide. This week we look at a man in Virginia who is a cold blooded killer. And he knows that he doesn't deserve to live. In fact, he wants to die. But instead of considering suicide, he forced the hand of Virginia's government. A government that was unwilling to sentence him to death. This is Robert Gleason's story.
Ep.032 - The Killer Vs. Larry Flynt
Men like Stalin and Hitler held racist visions which proved to be devastating to the world. Even decades later, they have influenced many individuals to act out on their hatred. This episode takes a look at one particular person in late 70's that destroyed many lives...and could've potentially been much worse.
Ep.031 - Up From The Grave
A lot of people associate Alabama with grits and gridiron. But just like every other state, there are ruthless men there who don't give a second thought to taking what isn't theirs...by whatever means necessary. And if they have to kill someone in the process, so be it.
Ep.030 - Maury Travis
Some creeps are easy to spot. Others blend into the background and don't raise any suspicions about themselves. Those are the ones that nightmares are made of.
Ep.029 - Peggy Hettrick - 1 Murder, 2 Victims
That old saying, "Follow your gut feeling," holds some merit. But sometimes that gut is wrong. In this case, the police investigation gets a little too much tunnel vision going on, and it proves to be very costly.
Sorry you guys are gone...hope everything works out. I think I enjoyed your podcast as much or maybe even more than any I've ever listened to. God bless.
Just a couple of nice good old boys telling stories! Refreshing to hear genuine, nice, pleasant fellas offering us some interesting, easy listening!
Ditch the Porch ...NOT
New to, and enjoying, Judge and Jeremy. Every bit as good as the duo doing Generation Why. The 'Back Porch' segment doesn't work for me. I understand the premise but feel the show stands alone well enough that the laughs and banjo bs isn't necessary and I struggle to remember the original benign premise. Keep up the good work Ditch the porch.
ADDENDUM; I wrote the above review after listening only to several shows. I still agree with the above assessment, but have come to enjoy The Porch. It is goofy, a palate-cleanser after some sometines awful cases and humans. Above all it is different from other true crime podcastst in this. And why not? I like it. So don't ditch the porch. More like me will come around to enjoying it - and add that final star!
