Targeted: True Crime Domestic Violence
The Targeted podcast investigates cases of family violence each season, using academic research to help us interpret the events so that we can become better advocates.
We’ve made many improvements as we get ready to launch season two: new sound equipment, new editing techniques, enhanced music, and new promos. We’ve also tweaked the basic formula so that we’ll have multiple cases in a season and will expand the amount of stand-alone episodes.
Most exciting of all is the participation of family members who graciously agreed to be interviewed on tape. Their episodes will be released mid-fall 2018.
Season One spotlights the 1976 death of 4-year-old Melisha Gibson after days of abuse at the hands of her stepfather. Join us for season 1 as we examine the circumstances surrounding how her tortuous death in 1976 led to changes in social service departments around the United States.
SEASON TWO will drop on August 28, 2018 and features the cases of Tracey Thurman and Joshua Osborne.
