Father Wants Us Dead

4.9/5

Critic Rating

In 1971, a mild-mannered accountant and Sunday school teacher from New Jersey named John List murders his wife, mother and three children — only to disappear and begin a new life entirely on the other side of the country. Now, two veteran journalists go inside the mind of the killer, learn about the doomed family, and revisit the 18-year-quest to bring List to justice — a saga even more bizarre and twisted than ever previously reported.New episodes will be released each Tuesday through June 21.

Pod Sauce Editors • Pod Sauce May 26, 2022

"...bizarre and unnerving from start to finish. In this podcast, you’ll learn more about the doomed List family than ever before, dive into the psyche of a psychopath, and revisit one of the most maddeningly bizarre manhunts in American history."

Keelin • Mentally? A Magpie. May 10, 2022

"...the quality is great. The writing is clear, but initially exposition-heavy. The story progresses easily in the hands of these two reporters. The first two episodes tactfully hint at a further, twisting story that is sure to be interesting, heartbreaking, and everything else we know comes with a tragedy like this."

Becky B. Dominguez • Victoria Crime Stoppers May 3, 2022

"...has the true-crime thrill and investigative weight you’ve come to expect from journalists with over 25 years of combined experience. The report keeps the tragedy of lost lives at the heart of this incredible story."
