Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives

Up and Vanished Podcast

Chronicling the disappearance of Georgia native Tara Grinstead over a decade ago, documentarian Payne Lindsay starts digging into this cold case and uncovers more than he could have imagined in this podcast. It's spooky and thrilling with plenty of heart — the perfect escape.
