In 1985, two Grateful Dead fans were brutally murdered. For the last three decades, rumors have circled around the Dead community that the wrong man was put in prison for it. One of the most iconic bands in American history, “The Dead” as they are affectionately called by their fans—self proclaimed "Dead Heads”—have been dogged by a darkness that has followed them since its inception. Despite the Grateful Dead’s ethos of peace and love and communal music, this darkness has led to the murder and the disappearance of some of the band’s most dedicated fans. Hosted by popular podcasters Payne Lindsey of Up and Vanished and Jake Brennan of Disgraceland, this podcast combines the distinct storytelling styles of both Payne's investigative style and Jake’s single-voice narrative style. From Tenderfoot TV and Double Elvis, this is Dead and Gone, a long, strange, deadly trip.New episodes every Thursday

    Introducing: Gone South, Season One: Who Killed Margaret Coon?

    In 1987, a former prosecutor named Margaret Coon took her dog for a walk in one of Louisiana’s safest and most affluent parishes. The next morning, she was found dead on the side of the road with a single stab wound in her back. St. Tammany Parish advertises itself as a safe haven from the crime and corruption of New Orleans, attracting thousands of residents over the last several decades. But there is a darker side to St. Tammany and that darkness ultimately consumed Margaret Coon. Welcome to Gone South Season 1: Who Killed Margaret Coon? Over the course of this documentary podcast series from C13Originals, a Cadence13 studio, journalist Jed Lipinski investigates the theories and motives surrounding Margaret Coon’s unsolved murder, shedding new light on a bewildering crime that has haunted St. Tammany for over 34 years.

Wait, what..? No closure?

I was riveted by this at moments but the overly dramatic narration was at times tough to stomach and honestly bordering ridiculous other times. Really wish there had been some closure or wrap up in the end. I haven’t ever listened to this type of podcast before but had assumed that these real crime stories would have closure. How does this have such a high rating? What did I miss here…?

Incredible investigative work, great sound

I listen to a lot of True Crime podcasts and this is the best series I’ve listened to in a long time. As a musician, I loved the weaving in of stories about the Dead. The music choices and sound editing is so good, too. I was mesmerized.
