Riveting! Can't wait for the movie.


"Somebody Somewhere" is a true crime investigative podcast series from RainStream Media, Inc. In Season 1, hosts David Payne and Jody Gottlieb tackle the open federal investigation into the 2001 murder of federal prosecutor Tom Wales. This 18-year-old case remains one of the highest priorities of the U.S. Department of Justice and has a $1.5 million reward. In Season 2, Payne and Gottlieb take you into a world few people ever experience as they investigate a 2016 mass shooting in a Seattle homeless encampment known as "The Jungle." Three teenage brothers were arrested for the crime, but are they the real killers? Only the Jungle knows.
