This week, we wanted to share an interview that Anne was part of on one of our favorite podcasts, Reckon Interview with John Hammontree. Every week, John examines American culture through a Southern lens by speaking with authors, entertainers, artists, leaders and thinkers to better understand the South. You can find the show wherever you get your podcasts. Enjoy!
On June 7, 1992 Stacy McCall, Suzie Streeter and Sherrill Levitt went to bed in a small town in the Ozarks. By the next morning, they had vanished without a trace. 30 years later, the mystery remains unsolved. Anne Roderique-Jones is creator and host of "The Springfield Three," a popular podcast examining the case of the disappearance of those three women and how it affected the community as a whole. Anne grew up in Springfield, Missouri, and was just 12 years old when these disappearances rocked her small town. She discusses what led her to revisit the story, the perils of getting too invested in solving a case, what she learned in the process, areas where the case went wrong, why we are all so obsessed with stories like these.
