    ALL EPISODES OF VIGILANTE ARE AVAILABLE NOW!

    Tim Miller is a famous search-and-rescuer in Dickinson, Texas, who's helped to locate more than 300 missing persons. After 38 years of searching, he’s now convinced that he’s finally solved his own daughter’s murder. In the first season of VIGILANTE, Allie Conti (NYT, Vice) explores the human cost of Tim’s singular obsession with the case -- from the people he’s falsely accused in the past, to his estranged daughter, to the current girlfriend he’s put in the crosshairs of a possible serial killer. As Allie prepares to interview the suspect in person, she grapples with whether she might be the latest victim of Tim’s vigilantism.

Wow! I’m glad I found it!

You brought me back to podcasts. Love your accents and stories. You are amazing storytellers. Thanks for it!
P.S. came from Dallas FanExpo. Was so happy to see you

Dj feel ,

New Favorite Podcast

It’s a joy to listen to two really close friends talk about LOTR, their experiences, things their working on, shows/movies/books they’ve watched or are watching. Their content makes the show, but their friendship really drives and sells it. Highly recommend to any LOTR fan or podcast fan in general.

bclyde ,

Saw them at comic con Dallas and now love the show!

Great show by two great gentlemen. Good for listening to on a drive or a dog walk or doing the dishes. Which is high praise for a podcast! Looking forward to more!
