    Introducing: The Vanished

    Introducing: The Vanished

    Few things are more devastating than a loved one going missing. On The Vanished podcast from Wondery, host Marissa Jones tells stories of missing persons that have gone overlooked by mainstream media. In a recent episode, Marissa looks into the disappearance of James Foster Chance. The 48-year-old man from Texas went missing in March of 2021. Devastated and without any leads, James’ family began searching for him. But in their search they began uncovering clues that James was not the man they thought he was. And worse -- that he may have disappeared on purpose.

    Mont Vernon is a town located in New Hampshire in the United States. It is the home of around 2,500 residents, and consists almost entirely of single-family homes and just a handful of stores. It has a real quaint feel to it and is considered by many to be the perfect location to raise a family, free from the violence that can plague bigger towns and cities. In October of 2009, however, this quaint town would be rocked by an extremely brutal murder that became a chilling reminder to the world that you’re never truly safe, even in your own home.

    Introducing: The Shrink Next Door

    Introducing: The Shrink Next Door

    Veteran journalist Joe Nocera’s neighbor in the Hamptons was a therapist named Ike. Ike counted celebrities and Manhattan elites as his patients. He’d host star-studded parties at his eccentric vacation house. But one summer, Joe discovered that Ike was gone and everything he’d thought he’d known about his neighbor -- and the house next door -- was wrong. From Wondery, the company behind Dirty John and Dr. Death, and Bloomberg, “The Shrink Next Door” is a story about power, control and turning to the wrong person for help for three decades. Written and hosted by Joe Nocera, a columnist for Bloomberg. The Shrink Next Door is now an Apple Original series, starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd. Watch now only on Apple TV+.

Lessor Known Cases

This is one of my all time favorite podcasts! I appreciate the focus on the lessor known cases, as they need to be heard also.
Emily has a great voice and even better accent!!
*one of very few podcasts I can listen to while I mow!*

My Favorite Podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast! The host is very sensitive to the victims. Both sides are discussed. I prefer this type of podcast over ones where they share their personal opinions. Keep up the amazing work!

Ads

WAYYYYYYYY TOO MANY!!! She’s an established author, freelance writer, has a Patreon AND over ten minutes of ads on every episode 🥱🧐 I hope she gives some of that money back to a good cause like other crime podcasters do, but she doesn’t mention that, so I doubt it. 👎👎
