That's How the Story Goes: a Hall-Mills Podcast
In 1922, near the banks of the Raritan River, a small city priest and a choir singer were slaughtered in the most infamous unsolved double homicide of the 20th century. Incompetent cops, political operatives, and the poorest and most powerful families in New Jersey were all swallowed in the circus that followed. Thinkery & Verse, working with the Church of Saint John the Evangelist, now present THAT'S HOW THE STORY GOES: A HALL-MILLS PODCAST, a nightmare narrative seen through the eyes of 21st century artists.
Hosted by Kaitlin Ormerod Huston and Johnny Kavanagh. Special guest: J. M. Meyer
Chorus of voices: Ensemble of "Thou Shalt Not".
Sound design, music composition, and editing from Erin Bogert and Sean Ullmer. Lyrics of 'That's How the Story Goes' by J.M. Meyer. Episode directed by Karen Alvarado. Produced by Karen Alvarado and Thinkery & Verse.
