Reporters Megan Cloherty and Jack Moore covered the trial of the D.C. Mansion Murders in 2015, when a D.C. power couple, their 10-year-old son and housekeeper were held hostage for 22 hours and murdered inside their burning house. They are the creators of the new podcast, “22 Hours: An American Nightmare.”
On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, Ben Domenech interviews Cloherty and Moore on the case’s complicated trail of evidence, the growing popularity of the true crime genre, and the personal impact of covering gruesome crime stories.
“You spend so much time thinking about the case, about the people involved…You’re constantly intellectualizing about this case so when I try to go to bed at night, it doesn’t really leave you,” Moore said.
