    Tamla Horsford

    Tamla Horsford

    From 1920 to 1940, no Black people lived in Forsyth County, Georgia. None. But by the time Tamla Horsford moved there with her family, a lot had changed. Or so it seemed, until Tamla was found dead in the Fall of 2018. Suddenly, a century’s worth of trauma resurfaced in the once all-white Georgia county. Today’s episode reveals what happens when a woman and a county collide.

    Please be aware that today’s episode references lynching and other racial violence. Please take care while listening.

    Sam Mandez

    Sam Mandez

    Sam Mandez was just 14 years old when his elderly neighbor, Frida Winter, was found murdered in her home, the same home Sam had painted with his grandfather just a few summers prior. It would be years before they set their eyes on Sam as their main suspect. And while he was just a kid when the crime took place, Sam was tried as an adult and eventually sentenced to life in prison for first-degree murder. Despite maintaining his innocence, he now faced a future behind bars. But what would that future *actually* look like? Today, we’re starting where a lot of other true crime stories end – in prison. 

    Please be aware that today’s episode discusses incarceration, solitary confinement, severe mental illness, suicide, and self-harm. Please take care while listening.

    Mindy Dodd

    If you consume a lot of true crime, you might have heard Mindy Dodd’s story before. Or at least one like it – the classic story of a housewife who, pushed too far, snaps and murders her husband. The scary music swells and the story ends neatly. The housewife is locked away. But what if that’s not the whole picture? Today’s episode is about the muddy middle that's so often left out.

    Please be aware that today’s references sexual assault and domestic violence. Please take care while listening.

Synchronicity

Great podcast for Dead Devotees, or those of us who just went to Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads(before the pandemic and exorbitant rent hikes shut it down) and enjoyed the artists who would come perform Dead music with Phil. Wasn’t a fan when I had a chance to go to a concert, but appreciate the legacy, while supporting a Jam band lovin’ spouse.

Just started listening today, and decided to do the spelling bee puzzle in the NY Times. Guess what word(s) were to be found in the puzzle: Dead, DeadHead, DeadHeaded…..

Well Done Pod!

The research and passion in this podcast is really great. I have NEVER heard of the Tulsa Massacre. I don’t know if my school was just subpar or how this slipped through the cracks really, but thank you for your podcast on this. It was something that I didn’t know I needed to know. Educating me at 45. It was long overdue.

Just wow…

The amount of reach done for these episodes is astounding. The podcast is extremely well written and, frankly, a pleasure to listen to. I subscribe to approximately 20 true crime podcasts and this is now my favorite.
