Tim Miller is a famous search-and-rescuer in Dickinson, Texas, who's helped track down 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 (New York Times, Vice) explores the human cost of Tim’s singular obsession with the case—from the people he’s falsely accused in the past, 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.

    GOOD CULT IS AVAILABLE NOW!

    Good Cult is an investigative podcast about the dark corners of the New Age self-help movements and the American counterculture. In season one, host River Donaghey will explore his family's group therapy cult to unpack the strange history of the Human Potential Movement, and try to understand how a violent self-help seminar in the 1980s evolved into a global phenomenon, which would capture his own family decades later.

Well told

Alli did a very good job of staying objective and not being pulled into Tim’s world while still telling a great story.

Wait, what?!

I really wanted to like Vigilante, but the story just felt very bland. It felt very similar to Criminal and Serial but lacked a lot of the heart and story telling. I genuinely listened to the final episode twice and do not understand “how he solved his daughters murder?” The final episode had no build up to the climax, no drama, no excitement..

Great podcast

Content is interesting and well researched. Narrated well.
