    Wondery Presents Against The Odds: Disaster at Sea

    Wondery Presents Against The Odds: Disaster at Sea

    Imagine you're on a war ship in the final days of World War Two. The conflict is winding down, and you're excited to get back home soon. But then, disaster strikes. Your ship is struck by enemy torpedoes. And within minutes, you're floating in the ocean, fighting for survival. From Wondery, the new season of the AGAINST THE ODDS podcast puts you in the shoes of the men who experienced the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, and their fight to stay alive.

    This is just a preview of Against The Odds, but you can listen to the full episode at wondery.fm/ATO_BadBatch.

    Introducing Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders

    In the era of some of the most heinous serial killers of all time — one murderous family went curiously unnoticed: The McCrary’s.

The podcast features the taped confessions of one of the killers, given when he was serving a life term in Colorado.
