The true-crime machine has now become so terrifying in its efficiency, that content is available as a story is unfolding. Gone are the days when some distance between a case and its regurgitation in documentary or podcast form is given.
However, sometimes getting information to the public immediately is a necessary evil, which is why there are several podcasts currently available about Alex Murdaugh. Here are the best ones.
'Murdaugh Murders Podcast'
According to the podcast's website, "Mandy Matney, creator of the Murdaugh Murders Podcast, is the only investigative journalist who has been covering the powerful Murdaugh family of South Carolina since the 2019 alcohol-fueled boat crash that killed 19-year-old Mallory Beach. It's so popular that Erin Lee Carr (I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth V. Michelle Carter) is turning it into a series, per Deadline. We can't wait for the casting on this one.
