80 episodes

For nearly 100 years, one family traded influence and held power in the South Carolina lowcountry until a fatal boat crash involving an allegedly intoxicated heir-apparent shed sunlight on a true crime saga like no other.  Award-winning journalist Mandy Matney has been investigating the Murdaugh family since that fateful night in 2019.
The now-infamous Murdaugh family is at the center of a litany of criminal investigations into fraud, obstruction of justice, the 2021 double homicides of Paul Murdaugh and his mother Maggie, the 2015 murder of young Stephen Smith, the suicide-for-hire plot of family patriarch Alex Murdaugh (who has since been charged with Paul & Maggie’s murders) and a vast insurance scheme that preyed on the region's most vulnerable citizens.
Matney's podcast, ranked #1 globally in 2021, provides unmatched insight into the horrific deaths, botched investigations and newly-uncovered crimes that are all interconnected.  Every corner of the justice system seems to be connected to this vile web of deceit, murder and corruption.
Now featuring Co-host Liz Farrell, you’ll follow along in real time from South Carolina as their exclusive sources guide listeners on a journey to expose the truth wherever it leads.

    The Murdaugh Murders Podcast team saw its first major legal victory this week.

A lot of grit

In a country where it can be dangerous to go against local authorities, this podcast is a brave one. It shines a light on rot, on money being above the law. Good luck and stay safe to you all.

fivestarsplease ,

Thorough podcast! Well done!

Would have given 5 stars, but they kept asking for it, which is super annoying. Just say “please review our podcast, thanks!” Dont ask people for 5 stars! Why not get peoples real review/thoughts instead?

That Said, i love your voice! You guys are doing an amazing job, keep it up!
