    Wondery Presents: Cold Season 3

    Wondery Presents: Cold Season 3

    Sheree Warren left her job in Salt Lake City on a mild October evening in 1985. She told a coworker she was headed to meet her estranged husband, Charles Warren, at a car dealership. But she never made it, Sheree vanished. When her car mysteriously surfaced weeks later, hundreds of miles away in Las Vegas, no one could say how it got there.

    When a young mother disappears under unexplained circumstances, police always turn suspicious eyes towards the husband. And although there was distrust around Charles Warren, he wasn’t the only suspect when Sheree went missing. She also had a boyfriend, a former cop named Cary Hartmann, who lived a sinister double life.


    Season three follows two suspects– men who both raised suspicion for investigators. But with two strong persons of interest with competing facts and evidence, it muddied the murder investigation. This season, host Dave Cawley, digs into the lives of these two men, the details of the case and examines the intersections between domestic abuse and sexual violence. The COLD team seeks to answer the question: what really happened to Sheree Warren?

Hilarious Banter and Top Notch Analysis

This is a podcast about movies but so much more.

The banter between the hosts is always laugh-out-loud funny and their movie analysis is top notch. They are very conscious of spoiler-free discussion and will always warn before getting into any spoilers.

I’ve been listening well over 10 years, I feel awful it’s taken me this long to write a review but I can’t recommend it higher. In addition to the movie reviews, the discussions on the topical items of the week in culture are always thought provoking and great to listen to. The hosts can disagree respectfully and discuss differing opinions without shouting over one-and-other. The world as a whole could learn a thing or two from The Filmcast hosts. 😂

Great analysis

I really appreciate their holistic analysis that includes identity and power and politics and humanity. It’s comprehensive and smart and necessary instead of ignoring the presence of those things. I hope they’ve done a review every time I see a movie! Enjoy a lot

Richiana ,

Only weekly podcast

I’ve been listening to these guys for years, and of all the podcasts I’m subscribed to (and wish I had the time to keep up to date on), this is my only weekly must listen. Keep up the good work!
