Dr. Death Podcast Wondery Really Into This Blog

Up & Vanished

What initially begins as a television documentary, turns into a podcast. While certain episodes explain the backstory, the series as a whole moves pretty fast.  It gets crazy. There’s a latex glove found in Tara’s yard, a bizarre Facebook encounter that targets Payne & the podcast & a discussion with none other than Nancy Grace.

Momma, wife, baker, reader & smart ass. I am Really Into doughnuts, inside jokes, trash TV, pizza, 48 Hours & George Michael.
