In this first part of a two-part episode, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland talk about the suspicious circumstances surrounding Alex Murdaugh’s one big case as a lead prosecutor; the untouchable “retired” judges who are reluctant to give up the power (and money) that come with the black robes; and the time Eric had to go to Circuit City to buy something to place at the altar of Dick Harpootlian.
As we revisit the ONE CASE Alex tried as a lead prosecutor — the Emmanuel Buckner case in 2019 – we talk in depth about that in episode 73 of Murdaugh Murders Podcast. If you haven’t listened to that one yet, we recommend you start there.
We also got some really good perspective from Eric on what it is really like out there for young attorneys in South Carolina who weren’t born with the last name Murdaugh.

Enjoy the show and join us for part two on Wednesday!
