Welcome signs proclaim it “America’s Most Beautiful Small Town.” It’s considered the Bourbon Capital of the World. And in many ways, Bardstown, Kentucky is just like a lot of small, tight-knit communities all across the country. But just under the surface, there’s something darker. Not everyone wants to talk about it. And a lot of people would rather forget. That’s because since 2013, Bardstown has also been the site of five unsolved murders. Now, the team behind “Bomber,” “True Crime Chronicles,” and “88 Days” is digging into these cases to find out what’s really happening in Bardstown, and whether these murders could be related. And along the way uncovering a history of violence and fear in this otherwise quintessential southern town.

Great podcast

This is an amazing series! Great hosting and I feel so bad for Sherry, she sounds like the sweetest soul she’s been through so much. This is a great podcast and please keep us updated with any updates!! I binged the whole thing just now at work, amazing!! Ignore the bad reviews, they don’t know what they’re talking about.
