    Episode 53 - Bryan Steven Lawson: The Death of Beth "Chandra" Lawson

    Episode 53 - Bryan Steven Lawson: The Death of Beth "Chandra" Lawson

    On 27th January 2017, Chandra Lawson was shot dead by her husband whilst she stood next to their two year old son. From the outset, Bryan Lawson claimed self defence. He said that he had been abused by his wife for years.


    In this episode we discuss the blinding evidence in this case and the fact that the entire shooting was recorded on the couple’s home security system. We also explore whether we think this was a case of self defence or whether it was cold blooded murder.

my new favorite podcast!

after finishing a more well known podcast and becoming disenchanted with it, i was on the hunt for a new one to listen to. i went on loads of true crime discussions and saw a lot of recommendations for this podcast. after listening to just the first episode, i was so thrilled that i couldn’t believe i hadn’t found it sooner. unlike other podcasts, you can tell that the hosts are not only passionate about the cases they’re researching and discussing, but they have a lot of their own relevant knowledge and information to share (instead of the usual “i think” or “i’m not sure” statements you hear on other podcasts). the hosts are so respectful in their telling of the cases but also make sure to include as much information as possible without immediate bias. this show deserves 100% more attention than it is getting on the charts and i’ve been recommending it to everyone i know. this is my new favorite podcast for sure!
