Interviews with Zach’s family and friends will help piece together what we know about that night, while letting others get to know who Zach was. And hopefully, by sharing the void left by this tragedy, someone with information on the man who killed Zach will finally come forward.

A Senseless Death - No Spoilers!

This true-crime podcast investigates the murder of Zachary Lamb who while driving home with his girlfriend after a night out with friends was followed to his neighborhood and shot. It goes into a very interesting discussion about privacy when it comes to red-light cameras but in addition goes to great lengths to talk about who Zach was (a bright, funny soon to be father). The solo host, Lindy Boustedt, is brilliant and an award-winning filmmaker. She takes care in interviewing the friends and family of Zach who in the last episode talk about what justice for Zach and themselves would be and how no matter what it would look like it wouldn’t bring him back. The 2019 four-part series has no commercials and on average episodes are about 22 minutes long. I can’t describe how genuine the host and guests’ voices are; the whole show makes you feel like you know them in some way. Music, intro and outro were all well-chosen and done skillfully. Trigger warnings for racism, and gun violence. If you have any information about the case you can make an anonymous tip to the Spokane Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
