Sometimes, news stories echo in our minds for years after they’ve occurred. With each season of Shattered, we select one of those complex, true stories and take an in-depth look. Season 4 charts the life and death of Jimmy Hoffa. Season 3 tells the story of a string of murders that took place in the mid-1970s in Oakland County, Michigan. Many people know the case as the Oakland County Child Killer. Season 2 tells the story of Rick Wershe Jr., also known as White Boy Rick. At 14, Rick became the youngest FBI informant ever and helped bring down some of Detroit’s biggest drug dealers. Then the FBI abandoned him, and he became the dealer. Season 1 investigates the disappearance of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton. The boys’ father, John Skelton, is the main suspect. Almost a decade later, the mystery of what happened to the boys remains open, with their small Michigan hometown wondering - could a father have committed an unimaginable crime?

Shattered Presents: Crimetown

We're hard at work on our next season of Shattered. In the meantime, though, we think you'll like this episode of another show we're fans of.  Welcome to Crimetown. Each season they investigate the culture of crime in a different city. In Season 2, Crimetown heads to the heart of the Rust Belt: Detroit, Michigan.  "From its heyday as Motor City to its rebirth as the Brooklyn of the Midwest, Detroit’s history reflects a series of issues that strike at the heart of American identity: race, poverty, policing, loss of industry, the war on drugs, and our universal desire for a savior. Detroit’s a tough town, and its residents are even tougher. They’ve weathered riots, a drug epidemic, political scandal, and innumerable other hardships, but they’re still here—and they have stories to tell. New episodes out Mondays, exclusively on Spotify."

Shattered Presents: Mismatch

As we prepare for the release of Shattered’s Season 3, we’re excited to share one of our favorite stories from the new season of our another podcast from Graham Media, Mismatch. Hosted by veteran reporter Roger Weber, Mismatch features stories about the incompatible, the unsuitable, and the out-of-step. In this episode: Theodore Roosevelt lived through a bullet in the chest and the carriage accident that killed his bodyguard. He’d beaten the chronic illness that left him gasping for air, dodged a charging rhinoceros, made his own charge up San Juan Hill and gotten through the day on which both his wife and mother died. But now, feverish and emaciated, he was ready for his life to end on The River of Doubt. For more Mismatch, visit or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
