Jensen & Holes: The Murder Squad is an “interactive” podcast on the Exactly Right podcast network run by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark of My Favorite Murder.
Each week, journalist Billy Jensen and Detective Paul Holes – who helped catch the Golden State Killer – take a deep dive into an unsolved murder or missing person case. At the end, they give the listeners an “assignment” to gather any new information about the case to help solve it.
When the first episode premiered, I was super excited to look at all the information to try and help solve the case. As soon as I got to the website, however, I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. I had absolutely no idea where to start looking for information. This is probably my own fault – I’m really good and doubting myself, and other people are really good at reinforcing said doubt.
But two recent episodes of the podcast reignited my passion for investigative journalism because they hit close to home. They discussed Jesse Matthew and the disappearances of Morgan Harrington and Hannah Graham, as well as the fact that Matthew might have more victims.
This hits close to home for me because Hannah Graham was a student at the University of Virginia, and I live in Virginia. I remember Hannah’s case making national news. So, I want to help get justice for the other potential victims.
