Despite the past four years of basically becoming Murdaugh scholars, True Sunlight co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell still find themselves shocked when they see “good ole boyism” at work in South Carolina.
On today’s episode, there’s a very frustrating update in the Bowen Turner case, plus they discuss yet another prisoner that lawyer-legislator Todd Rutherford was able to secure a secret early-release deal for. Also on the episode, there appears to be a coordinated effort to remove Lowcountry judge Bentley Price from the bench. What’s going on there? Finally, they take a good look at one of the funniest filings Dick and Jim have ever made in their efforts to get Alex Murdaugh a better deal.

Stay tuned for details on dates and times to catch Mandy in person and virtually in Charleston (Oct 26), Columbia (early November), Bluffton (Mid-November) and Hilton Head (December & January) in the coming weeks. We’ll offer seats to venue partners and Premium members first, then to the general public.
