True Crime and the Treadmill - LBF

So, I'm NOT a huge fan of the gym. I don't like sweating, my playlists are tired and I'd rather be at lunch.

But! I have to exercise because the Jabba the Hut look has been out of style for a LONG TIME.

Which is why I'm so excited to discover two new podcasts that make 30 minutes on a treadmill seem like seconds.

First: A Killing on the Cape. Produced by 20/20, this weekly podcast revisits the mysterious death of Christa Worthington in Truro in 2002. Christopher McCowan, was arrested in 2005 and found guilty of her murder.

But is he?

Check out the Globe story on the podcast. There are three episodes so far - a new one is released each Wednesday. It's riveting.

Fifteen years later, Christa Worthington's murder is focus of new ABC podcast and TV series - The Boston Globe

The murder of Christa Worthington in January 2002 made national news and shook the seaside community of Truro to its core. The gruesome details of how Worthington was raped and killed at her home, and how her 2-year-old daughter was found clinging to her bloodied body, left an unforgettable mark on this small Cape Cod town and the public at large.

The other one I'm into is Up and Vanished, "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 amateur investigator, examines old case evidence and re-interviews persons of interest. What happened to Tara Grinstead?"


I'm late on this one - it's already two seasons old and I suspect the case might be solved, but I'm not googling anything because it's SO GOOD.
