10 episodes

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.

Sad but excellent podcast.

I’m not neck deep in hateful politics, so I wasn’t looking for an agenda to be in a podcast about 6 innocent children lost. They done a good job allowing the actual people involved to tell the story and open us up to how and why these things can happen right under our noses and go unnoticed. RIH precious angels.

Sad and interesting story to start but...

It became long in the tooth after the first few episodes and the political agenda behind the two hosts bleeds through and ruined it for me. White guilt and bad white people who don’t accept mixed families is the message.

Ok

Interesting and tragic story, but really could have done without the political/leftist propaganda
