Convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh is headed to federal court to plead guilty for the first time in any of his criminal cases. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell take a look at the timing of this plea deal and how his motion for a new trial — with his bombshell accusations of jury-tampering — fit into Team Murdaugh’s larger plan.

We’re back on the Murdaugh roller coaster this week so.. buckle up.

Speaking of roller coasters, Mandy has been recording the audio version of her book Blood On Their Hands: Murder, Corruption, And The Fall of the Murdaugh Dynasty and it’s been so emotional for her saying out loud the parts of this story she kept so tight for so many years.

But for this episode, it seems like Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin are continuing to burn South Carolina’s justice system to the ground — all to help a man who ruined so many lives — but so far not one of their plans has worked. Will this be the one time they’re actually on the mark?
Let’s get into it.
