Southern Nightmare: The Hunt for the South Side Strangle
Richard Foster hosted a special live sneak preview event for Southern Nightmare: The Hunt for The South Side Strangler. During this event, Foster discussed the reporting that went into the podcast and how it differs from print journalism. He also interviewed sources from the podcast, including one of the lead homicide detectives who worked on the case.
Special Guests included:
- Retired Richmond Police homicide detective Ray Williams
- Style Weekly founder Lorna Wyckoff
- Debbie Smith, founder, H-E-A-R-T (Hope Exists After Rape Trauma)
This event was made possible through a grant from PEN America’s Press Freedom Incentive Fund, which supports projects that underscore the vitality of journalism through the impact it has on a range of local issues.
