Murdaugh Murders: Suspicion and intrigue in South Carolina

THREE STARS

Of course, the Mudaugh case is fascinating to begin with, but what Matney brings to the table is expert knowledge — both of the case itself and also of good storytelling. She busts myths, introduces new and important details, carefully constructs and deconstructs scenarios and, critically, she’s does a brilliant job of familiarizing her listeners with the local politics and hierarchies of her part of South Carolina.

The Line: Moral dilemmas for the military

FIVE STARS

Eddie Gallagher is what’s you might politely term a “divisive character.” Depending on who you ask, they could call him a decorated military hero or a murderous thug. In The Line, Dan Taberski attempts to separate fact from fiction in Gallagher’s controversial war crime case — and revisit some of the morally loaded questions around acceptable wartime behavior.

Suave: A tale of friendship and redemption

Suave is raw and true. It’s about human fallibility and how we process it as a society, and as individuals. About navigating forgiveness and guilt. It is about understanding predicament and fighting our human impulse to essentialize criminality, recognizing that a human being is so much more than a poor choice they once made.
