Radio/Podcasts

MAN-Slaughter

Launch date: Wednesday, March 3 on Wondery+ (ad-free). The podcast will launch on advertiser-supported podcast platforms on Wednesday, March 17.

Hosts: Dorthy Marcic and Molly Peterson

Description from Wondery:

Manslaughter tells intertwining stories about how one gunshot on a cold Wisconsin night in 1970 dramatically changed multiple lives. A bullet brutally tore through decorated law enforcement veteran LaVerne Stordock. Decades later, his niece, Dorothy Marcic, transformed herself into an amateur detective in a quest for truth and closure about that night. At the center of Dorothy’s investigation is Suzanne Brandon, LaVerne’s second wife, who confessed to the shooting—and who Dorothy believes completely escaped justice. As it follows Dorothy’s discoveries, MAN-Slaughter explores questions around the psychology of crime, the ways women are made responsible in families, and the lasting impact of trauma. A final encounter between Suzanne and Dorothy reveals a complex connection that even that gunshot cannot shatter. MAN-Slaughter is based on the book “With One Shot” by Dorothy Marcic.
