A Killing On the Cape – ABC NewsListen
It was a crime that rocked an idyllic seaside town in Cape Cod — the 2002 murder of Christa Worthington, who was found stabbed to death with her 2-year-old daughter, unharmed at her side. What came next was a three-year search for her killer that would involve unorthodox steps by police, a lengthy list of potential suspects, and an entire town under suspicion. Christa’s trash collector, Christopher McCowen, would eventually be convicted of the crime, but his trial would raise questions about the evidence, investigative methods, and whether racial prejudice played a role. Now, ABC Radio and “20/20” take a look at all the evidence and for the first time ever, hear directly from Christopher McCowen, to examine whether the right man is behind bars.

Common Sense with Dan Carlin – Dan CarlinListen
Common Sense with Dan Carlin is an independent look at politics and current events from popular New Media personality Dan Carlin.
Carlin’s self-described “Martian” viewpoints infuse each episode with a political alien’s take on the world around us and the problems it faces. It’s a smart, unique (and admittedly U.S.-centric) program that doesn’t dumb down the information or analysis for the slowest person in the room.
Carlin’s rapid-fire staccato voice has been compared to William Shatner after too many espressos. That, plus his penchant for making everyone in the audience mad at him eventually, makes for a witch’s brew of a podcast that is not for everyone. But for those craving a deeper intellectual analysis, a less partisan approach and unpredictable outside-the-box revelations, Common Sense with Dan Carlin is a feast for the mind.
