Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash. Could these lives have been saved?

Broken Harts, a new podcast from Glamour and HowStuffWorks, investigates this question with more than 30 never-before-heard interviews. Cohosts and Glamour editors Justine Harman and Elisabeth Egan and reporter Lauren Smiley follow the family’s journey from South Dakota through Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington, and finally to that 100-foot cliff in California.

Could have been better

This was a very kind telling of a terrible and tragic story. It left me angry and confused about why this was made. I have no sympathy for Jenn. Was I supposed to?

Racist

Most racist podcast I’ve ever heard. They love to say white women, white privileged. They got away with it not because they were manipulative and crazy, but because they were white. Ignorance. Interesting story. But the obsession of their races distorted the real issues.

Horrible quality

I really wanted to hear this story on my hour long rush hour drive home, but the quality of the sound is so horrible I couldn’t even make it two blocks.
