  • 72 - Listen Now: The Competition

    Every summer for the past seven decades, 50 high school seniors—one from every state—descend on Mobile, Alabama to take part in one of the country’s most lucrative scholarship competitions for teen girls.  The Competition takes you behind the scenes of the Distinguished Young Women (DYW) program, and follows seven girls as they experience the highs and lows of competing for two weeks, away from home and under the most high-stress circumstances. Some girls enter for the money, some for prestige. All of them are used to being the best and the brightest. But only one will walk away with the top prize. Host Shima Oliaee (Dolly Parton’s America, Pink Card) was Nevada’s contestant in 2001. More than 20 years later, she returns to Alabama as a judge. What can two weeks with 50 of the country’s most ambitious teens tell us about girlhood in America? Listen to The Competition on the Wondery App or wherever you get your podcasts.

  • 69 - Fight for the Truth Part 1

    On September 6, 1988, a wealthy couple, Seymour and Arlene Tankleff, were brutally attacked and killed in their home on Long Island, New York. The main suspect was their 17-year-old son, Marty, who was the sole survivor in the house. Detective James McCready was convinced Marty was to blame and prepared a written statement for him to admit he killed his parents. But the physical evidence at the crime scene didn't match the murder weapons described in Marty's so-called confession. Erin Moriarty and retired 48 Hours producer Gail Zimmerman go behind the scenes on a case that spanned nearly two decades and was one of the first wrongful conviction stories they worked on.
