In 1983, Paladin Press, a fringe publisher, released a book called Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors. The author, who went by the pen name Rex Feral, offered very specific tips for the aspiring contract killer— where to find employment, how much to charge...and how to get away with murder. Ten years later, Tiffani Horn’s mother, 8-year-old brother, and a close family friend were found murdered. The exhaustive investigation involved multi-state surveillance and wiretaps, but it wasn’t until detectives stumbled upon Hit Man that they suddenly had what they called a blueprint for the murders. Hosted by journalist Jasmyn Morris.

Fair & Thoughtful

A true crime story that necessarily evolves into a fascinating contemplation of the fringes of the first amendment. A stimulating listen for crime and law junkies alike.

Some popular reviews have disparaged this program’s “liberal agenda,” but that’s utter nonsense. This journalist has arranged a thoughtful conversation that encourages listeners to consider the motives and mindsets of all the involved parties.

Liberal agenda

Yep she is definitely pushing a liberal agenda. Only good tbing about this podcast is it made me aware of the book hit man and now I want a copy.

Please fix your cuts

I just listened to the first episode, very intriguing however I found it very inconsistent and distracting that the jump cuts in the podcast were done so poorly. She would start talking about one thing and then a mid-sentence theme change would happen. I checked my phone to see if it was something wrong with the wifi or my app...but nope it’s the podcast. I would say it’s 4 stars but the edits really ruined the experience
