    Presenting Gone South Season 3: The Sign Cutter

    Presenting Gone South Season 3: The Sign Cutter

    On September 3, 2018, a rancher in Laredo, Texas, discovered a woman’s body shot execution-style on the side of the road. When investigators identified her as a local sex worker, their search for the killer took them into the darkest corners of the city. Then, after days of false starts and dead-ends, another body turned up, terrifying residents and leading law enforcement to conclude a serial killer is at large. More would die before a survivor finally came forward and identified the killer… but his motives proved as confounding as his crimes.

    S3 [16] Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (Part 2)

    In Part 1, we explored the myriad of theories as to why MH-370 vanished, digging into one that is most common, and understanding how it came to be so widely accepted.

What really happened to this podcast

You guys should do a “what really happened” about this podcast. Like what happened to this podcast.. it was here and then poof gone with no explanation.. did the host pass away? , did the Rock just stop shelling out the cash to keep it going? Or did the powers that be shut it down after asking too many questions about Espstein ?? What really happened to what really happened ??
