Starring Alison Sweeney and Benjamin Ayers, the latest episode of Alex McPherson’s true crime podcast centers on the death of a man whose wife seems certain to be convicted for his murder.

As she follows the story, Alex, assisted by her colleague Drew Godfrey, becomes convinced that the wife didn’t do it, but unless she can identify and locate the killer before the trial reaches its conclusion, an innocent woman will take the fall for a murder she didn’t commit.

In the next episode, murder strikes close to home when disgraced self-help coach Billy Garrett looks to make a comeback in the Harrington area, after serving time for the death of a previous client. Alex McPherson is drawn to investigate when a new employee of the Chronicle (Chuck’s nephew) fails to return from Garrett’s workshop. Using the podcast as her cover, Alex and star reporter Drew Goddard, go undercover at the wilderness retreat. They arrive just in time for the murder of a retreat member, Daniel Baird.
