    The Curious Case of Arthur Badger

    The Curious Case of Arthur Badger

    In this episode Mandy and Liz dive deeper into the Arthur Badger case and share how Russell Laffitte, Alex Murdaugh and potentially others allegedly aimed to reap benefits from the Badger family’s unimaginable tragedy.
    Despite how egregious it is and despite how much it has exposed the underworld of Alex Murdaugh, these circumstances deserve a more critical examination than they’ve received thus far. Names you’ll recognize like Corey Fleming, Carmen Mullen and others continue to pop up and we get some great insight from the indefatigable Eric Bland.
    Plus - we look at new developments in the Beach’s civil case against the Murdaughs and Parker’s.

    Cup of Justice Bonus Episode 3: Motives and Motivations - What's Up Next For Alex Murdaugh?

    Cup of Justice Bonus Episode 3: Motives and Motivations - What's Up Next For Alex Murdaugh?

    As we reported in MMP this week, the Judge Hall reversed his earlier order that basically split the "boat crash" case in two and allowed the Murdaughs to indefinitely postpone that trial so Alex could prepare for his speedy murder trial. The Attorney General’s Office told us the murder case still hasn’t been scheduled. 
    While we wait for those crucial announcements, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland want to share some conversations about what might be happening behind the scenes.

    We all want to drink from the same Cup of Justice — and it starts with learning about our legal system. What questions do y’all have for us? Email info@murdaughmurderspodcast.com and we'll do our best to answer your questions in these bonus episodes.

    Who Are They Protecting? Part One

    Who Are They Protecting? Part One

    Recent revelations and legal filings have us wondering if investigators are maintaining the momentum needed to hold all of Alex Murdaugh’s alleged conspirators accountable. Or are they taking a page from the Good Ole Boys handbook and hoping that one man’s punishment will get the public to shut up and move on?
    Mandy and Liz share their take on journalistic ethics as it pertains to victims, dive deep into recent motion filings, and take a look at the entangling alliances within the federal and state justice systems.

    'Rich People Problems': The Victimization of Russell Laffitte

    'Rich People Problems': The Victimization of Russell Laffitte

    Russell Laffitte and his wife, Susie, gave an epically tone-deaf performance in an effort to get one of his two ankle monitors removed earlier this month.
    Mandy and Liz take a hard look at a recently released transcript of what went down in federal court on Sept. 6. What should have been a run-of-the-mill hearing, was anything but as Russell and Susie tried to convince a judge that he too is a victim of Alex Murdaugh. 
    We also hear a powerful response from Alania Plyler and stay tuned for more detailed legal analysis from Eric Bland this Friday on our new Cup of Justice Bonus Episode.

    Who Killed Stephen Smith? Part Six

    Who Killed Stephen Smith? Part Six

    In this episode, we caught up with Stephen’s mother, the wonderful and resilient Sandy Smith, and Mike Hemlepp, Jr., the Columbia attorney who stepped up to help after Sandy’s previous attorney let her down.
    We asked Sandy and Mike where things with the case stood and how they felt about everything. While the case gained some momentum last year after SLED took it over from the South Carolina Highway Patrol, it’s now 15 months later and we were hoping by now to know more. 
    Mandy and Liz take a new look at Stephen’s case. And now, we’re angry and demanding answers. 

    IF YOU KNOW who killed Stephen Smith, or who covered up this crime, please call:
    Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry: (843) 554-1111
    Mike Hemlepp’s Office: (803) 373-1706

dayzed and confused ,

One of my favorites

I’ve been listening since day one and really appreciate your dedication and hard work. Reminds me of the serial podcast that brought attention to a wrongfully accused individual.

However, as of the past month or so, I’m having a really hard time following the weekly updates. They seem to be all over the place, any tips on how to follow along better? I’m getting pretty lost

IrritatedGamer030415 ,

Revelation upon revelation!

I applaud Mandy & Liz for their dogged investigation and reporting. The way they explain all the nuances is helpful, and it’s great when they get weigh-in from attorneys. The circumstances of the deaths and the depths of corruption are enraging! The privilege the defendants feel entitled to is also a source of outrage. As the story unfolds, what was at first a seemingly simple scenario has become a very layered, outrageous, unbelievable story of how one man’s actions have revealed more criminals and more victims. Every time I think it can’t get worse or that we’ve seen the depths of the alleged depravity of Murdaugh and Laffitte and their enablers, it becomes whack-a-mole with yet another atrocity. Gah!

I love that these two young (relatively speaking) journalists have dug in and hope they stick with it until the good ol’ boys are held to account both in the court of law and in the court of public opinion.

Murdaugh Murder Podcast

I really like this podcast and look forward to it.
I think your team is helping to uncover facts and details that hopefully will help the prosecution and investigators in the pursuit of justice for all the victims of Alec Murdaugh and others.
I do agree with done of the other comments to keep the anger out of the commentary and please no swear words.
