For nearly 100 years, one family traded influence and held power in the South Carolina lowcountry until a fatal boat crash involving an allegedly intoxicated heir-apparent shed sunlight on a true crime saga like no other.  Award-winning journalist Mandy Matney has been investigating the Murdaugh family since that fateful night in 2019. The now-infamous Murdaugh family is at the center of a litany of criminal investigations into fraud, obstruction of justice, the 2021 double homicides of Paul Murdaugh and his mother Maggie, the 2015 murder of young Stephen Smith, the suicide-for-hire plot of family patriarch Alex Murdaugh (who has since been convicted of Paul & Maggie’s murders) and a vast insurance scheme that preyed on the region's most vulnerable citizens. Matney's podcast, ranked #1 globally in 2021, provides unmatched insight into the horrific deaths, botched investigations and newly-uncovered crimes that are all interconnected.  Every corner of the justice system seems to be connected to this vile web of deceit, murder and corruption. Later featuring Co-host Liz Farrell, you’ll follow along in real time from South Carolina as their exclusive sources guide listeners on a journey to expose the truth wherever it leads.

    End of An Era And Brighter Days Ahead: The Best (And Worst) of MMP + What’s Next

    End of An Era And Brighter Days Ahead: The Best (And Worst) of MMP + What’s Next

    This is the last episode of the Murdaugh Murders Podcast created by Mandy Matney, written with journalist Liz Farrell and produced by David Moses... but don’t freak out! We are simply changing the name of the podcast next week while the mission stays the same.
    The podcast will ONLY get better from here — with more stories to cover, more journalists to work with, and WOO, more time to do these podcasts. 

    This podcast has been much more than work for our whole team in the past two years. 

    So for this episode, before we start tackling other complicated cases, we want to take some time to reflect on the last two years. To remember the good, bad, ugly and straight up strange things we have revealed on MMP. To remember where we started, how far we’ve come. To remind everyone that if we can do this, you can do it too. 

    As the Murdaugh Murders Podcast team looks toward a very bright future of shining a light on corruption, co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell reflect on the past two years of uncovering the truth in the dark underworld of Alex Murdaugh. The battle for justice is ongoing but being pesky paid off. In this episode, Mandy and Liz go behind-the-scenes and share the best, biggest and funniest moments of the podcast and the many surprises they encountered along the way.

    ‘Enough is Enough': The Big Problem With The Justice System And How To Fix It

    ‘Enough is Enough': The Big Problem With The Justice System And How To Fix It

    On Tuesday, about 100 people gathered at the South Carolina statehouse to talk about something really important — victims and how they are often pushed aside in our justice system. 

    Murdaugh Murders Podcast host Mandy Matney and other victims advocates in South Carolina rallied on the Statehouse steps this week, calling for meaningful change at the legislative level. Victims of violent crime — and victims of Alex Murdaugh — have had enough of this system, which continues to ignore and harm them.

    In this episode, Mandy Matney and Co-Host Liz Farrell talk about victims rights, the need for judicial reform and how to solve the problem with legislator-lawyers.

    Casually Cruel: What Happened to Gloria Satterfield?

    Casually Cruel: What Happened to Gloria Satterfield?

    Only one person alive knows what really happened to Gloria Satterfield the day she was found bleeding from the head at Moselle in February 2018. And we all know who that is... 
    Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell unwind the latest filing from Alex Murdaugh’s attorneys in which the convicted murderer now admits to lying about how Gloria Satterfield died. Also on the show: the boat crash case starts heating up and Dick and Jim beg the court for money. 

    On Tuesday May 9, Sandy Smith and I will be speaking among several special guests at the Victims Matter Rally at the Statehouse in Columbia South Carolina. As we have talked about time and time again on this podcast, our justice system so often prioritizes the privileged and fails victims of violent crime. And too many of our lawmakers are working for the bad guys. 
    As we are working on expanding our reach to focus on cases across the nation and maybe eventually the world where Crime Meets Corruption — we want to ensure that the pressure continues right here at home in South Carolina. 
    We hope to see you at the SC Statehouse on Tuesday... and let's get into it...

    ‘We are here to right wrongs’: What’s Next After Murderer Illegally Released + Alex Murdaugh’s Prison Life

    ‘We are here to right wrongs’: What’s Next After Murderer Illegally Released + Alex Murdaugh’s Prison Life

    Our team has spent the last week diving down different rabbit holes related to the Jeroid Price case. We talked about Price a lot in the last episode, but for a quick reminder, In December 2003, Price was sentenced to 35 years in prison for the 2002 murder of Carl Smalls Jr.

    After a whirlwind week, the state of South Carolina is sending convicted murderer Jeroid Price back to prison, but the fight against secret back door deals continues. 

    Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk about the fiery state Supreme Court hearing that ended with an order to rearrest Price, the Supreme Court’s apparent attempt to keep the hearing from being broadcast and what might be driving Alex Murdaugh’s desire to be put in gen-pop at his prison.

    The ‘Godfather’ of S.C.’s Prisons Gets Out Early and the Truth about the “Stephen Smith Theories”

    The ‘Godfather’ of S.C.’s Prisons Gets Out Early and the Truth about the “Stephen Smith Theories”

    Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrel take a look at the shocking SECRET release of convicted murderer Jeroid Price, who was allowed to leave prison 15 years before his sentence was over. They also lay out the reason why a widely publicized theory about Stephen Smith’s death doesn’t make sense when compared to the evidence.

    Alex Murdaugh’s Pawn: Eddie Smith Is Out of Jail But Still Caught in the Middle

    Alex Murdaugh’s Pawn: Eddie Smith Is Out of Jail But Still Caught in the Middle

    In this 88th episode, Co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrel unpack Russell Laffitte’s latest attempt to get a do-over in federal court. They also take a step back to look at the bigger picture of how convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh used Eddie Smith to do his bidding and then threw him under the bus in an effort to escape consequence.

    Now, Eddie is caught between the state of South Carolina and its two-tiered justice system that continues to treat the powerful much differently.

Hi
I just started listening to your podcast. Your voice is just fine. I like the way you walk us through all the evidence.

Nickname Was Already Taken ,

Unprofessional

It peters off before end of run; pushing their new money podcast for full telling of the full story. Neglect this one.

The voice isn’t my problem but the quality of the recordings are awful
