My absolute favorite podcast of all time is Up and Vanished a true-crime documentary.
If you haven’t yet listened, do yourself a favor and download the series right away, its free! Up and Vanished is an investigative podcast that explores the unsolved disappearance of Georgia beauty queen and high school teacher, Tara Grinstead. The 11-year-old cold case is the largest case file in the history of Georgia. Follow along as host Payne Lindsey, a film director turned investigator, examines old case evidence and re-interviews persons of interest to crack the case and determine happened to Tara Grinstead. The podcast has so many unexpected twists and turns as listeners are on the edge of their seats as Payne digs up more and more new evidence by reviewing old leads and uncovering new ones. Up and Vanished quickly expanded from a planned six-episode season to a final count of 24 episodes with numerous bonus episodes. As the people of Ocilla, Georgia began talking about the case again, new leads and stories emerged. In February 2017, the GBI arrested two suspects for Grinstead’s murder.
