Father Wants Us Dead
True Crime

In 1971, a mild-mannered accountant and Sunday school teacher from New Jersey named John List murders his wife, mother and three children — only to disappear and begin a new life entirely on the other side of the country. Now, two veteran journalists go inside the mind of the killer, learn about the doomed family, and revisit the 18-year-quest to bring List to justice — a saga even more bizarre and twisted than ever previously reported. New episodes will be released each Tuesday through June 21.

  • Kind of annoying

    Really liked the story and everything that went along with it but hated how the girls talk to each other the whole time. I got to episode three and even though I was very intrigued by the murder I cannot stand listening to it anymore because of how many conversations they had with each other. You guys should stop doing that and I would love to listen to your podcast

  • How does this have good reviews??

    One of the worst podcasts I have listened to. So many podcasts out like this one where they just like to talk and don’t get anywhere meaningful. If you’re looking for true crime-ish that has purpose and integrity in reporting I would suggest these instead: Bear Brook, The Real Killer, An Absurd Result, Missing & Murdered, Your Own Backyard, Root of Evil, Firebug, Borderline, Unraveled (S1), Tom Brown’s Body.
