    Wondery Presents: WeCrashed

    The co-working company WeWork was the poster child for a new economy. It was born in New York City from the ashes of the Great Recession, WeWork’s founders wanted to change not just the way people work, but how they live, sleep, and even raise their children. Its charismatic founder Adam Neumann had an intoxicating vision for the company -- but did it ever match the reality? Hosted by David Brown of Wondery’s hit podcast Business Wars, WeCrashed is a six-part series about the rise and fall of WeWork. It’s a story of hope and hubris, and pulls back the curtain on the lengths certain people will go to chase “unicorns.” Listen now at wondery.fm/wecrashedSFTC

    8: #Justice4Andrew: The Suspicious Death of Andrew Lewis (remastered & updated)

    8: #Justice4Andrew: The Suspicious Death of Andrew Lewis (remastered & updated)

    The Death of Andrew Lewis -- a beloved musician is shot. His ex-girlfriend was a witness. The shooter, Eli Miller, was her date and he had been trying to assault Andrew all evening. Miller would claim it was self-defense. But how is shooting someone in the back of the head self-defense?

    I have updated and remastered this episode. I spoke to Andrew's sister, Laura, who told me that the DA's office has no interest in pursuing charges against Eli Miller nor did they even investigate further. The family has lost hope in receiving justice for their beloved son and brother, but I intend to do everything I can to make sure this travesty of an investigation is not forgotten.

    Original Music featured on this episode: "Song for Me" - Written and recorded by Andrew Lewis. 

    Download Andrew's music for free. His family wants to share it with the world. He deserves to be heard. And so does his case.

    80: The Saga of Cullen & Priscilla Davis, Part 1

    In 1976, a “mysterious man in black” would break into the home of Priscilla Davis. A huge mansion, ostentatious by all standards and still owned by her estranged oil tycoon husband, Cullen Davis. What happened that night, would be the talk of Forth Worth. D Magazine dubbed the biggest goddamn thing to happen to Fort Worth since the railroad. But it is a tragedy, cloaked in scandal and salacious gossip. This is part 1 of this infamous Texas saga.

    In the summer of 1975, a scandalous romance between a 37 year old woman and 20 year old college student would not only shock the town of Jackson, Mississippi. But it would ruin so many lives when the jilted young man could not handle her rejection.

    This episode is dedicated to my mother, Lisa.
