    Wondery Presents: Hope In Darkness

    In June 2016, American Joshua Holt traveled to Venezuela to get married. As part of a crackdown on crime under the government of Nicolás Maduro, he and his wife were suddenly rounded up and taken to El Helicoide, a now-infamous prison in the heart of Caracas, known for torture, physical violence and overcrowding. They would spend the next two years there. With the help of journalist Becky Bruce, Josh tells the story of how they managed to find Hope in Darkness.

    Wondery Presents: Generation Why

    Wondery Presents: Generation Why

    In this preview, The Generation Why Podcast revisits the case of Holly Bobo. In 2011, 20-year-old Holly Bobo was about to leave her house to take an exam to complete her nursing degree when her neighbors heard a scream. Her brother looked outside and thought she was arguing with her boyfriend. After speaking with his mother, he learned that her boyfriend is out of town and that the man with her is a stranger. By the time Clint Bobo understood the danger she was in, it was too late. She and the strange man disappeared into the woods, and Holly Bobo would never be seen alive again. Generation Why hosts Justin and Aaron first discussed this case in 2016, and since then, Zach Adams was convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Holly.

    Bargo is located just off the Hume Highway in the New South Wales southern highlands. It’s a sleepy little town known most for its interesting bushranging history. It’s also known as the gateway to Picton Lakes, the very last pristine freshwater lake near Sydney. However in 1992, a 9-year-old girl vanished on her way home from school and in the aftermath, the small town of Bargo was left forever marred by the tragedy.

    In some religions and communities, great weight is placed on the family and its so-called collective honor. To some within these religions and communities, family name and reputation dominates everything else. Sometimes when perceived shame has been brought upon said family, the victim has to pay the ultimate price. In 2006, a Kurdish woman named Banaz Mahmod vanished from her home in London.

    In 2005, Ideal Home Magazine carried out a survey which showed that 1 in 5 women keeps a weapon beside her bed to defend herself against intruders. A number of women also carry concealed weapons or alarms while out in public out of fear that they will be attacked. While it may seem to be an extreme reaction to the nation’s obsession with crime, it is behavior that for a number of women, is completely normal. In Croydon, London, in September of 2005, a young model was attacked on the driveway of her own home, giving legitimacy to the fear that millions of women face.

    In summer of 2015, a brutal crime scene was uncovered in the Bonita Springs home of a wealthy and well-known holistic medicine physician. In the middle of the kitchen lay the bludgeoned body of a woman, her head caved in by blows from a hammer. The murder completely gripped the nation but it wouldn’t take long until a trail of proverbial breadcrumbs led right to the doorstep of the guilty party.
