If you’re familiar with names like Whitney Heichel, Jessica Ridgeway, Sierra Lamar, and Lauren Spierer, then chances are you’re fascinated by true crime (and maybe shows like 48 Hours or Dateline, complete with Keith Morrison’s soothing voice).
If so, you may know The Charley Project, which is a complete listing of more than 9,000 cold cases (mostly about missing persons). It was named after the case of Charley Ross in the 1870s, which you can read more about here. The site is actually on brief hiatus right now, but this is a discussion with Meagan Good, who was the be-all and the end-all for the site (writer/editor/researcher/webmaster). If you’re fascinated by true crime and/or the process of putting together stories, it’s a good listen (and less than 10 minutes).
One of the specific cases she addresses in this podcast is Adam Herrman; I hadn’t heard of it. If you haven’t either, read this.
