It’s been another wild week in the world of Alex Murdaugh. True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell give a breakdown of what happened at Alex’s federal plea hearing last week and the vicious dealings that have occurred since then. What is Alex’s larger plan? Also on the show, Cory Fleming appeals his sentencing in South Carolina Circuit Court and Russell Laffitte is reporting to prison … in Florida. Plus an exploration into how Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin are being paid and why recent subpoenas seeking information about their entertainment deals are important.

For some reason, we didn’t expect to still be stuck in Murdaugh land this fall. We were admittedly in denial thinking these cases would wrap up quietly and we could move on to other victims who need help shining the sunlight. But here we are, another week with an episode full of updates and important information on the never-ending Murdaugh saga.

While there is so much more to talk about today, we’ll start off by talking about Crime Con and the concept of accountability.

We can’t rely on those who police lawyers in our state to do anything about Dick’s gun-pointing in court or Jim breaking prison rules for his propaganda documentary, but we can remind our millions of listeners and thousands of Luna Shark Premium Members of who these men really are and why they don’t deserve to be celebrated and that is a big deal.
Lots to chat about, so let’s get into it!
