Episodes

Episode 6: Damages  

In Episode 6: Damages, we reflect on the different kinds of trauma caused the loss of a child—or in this case, children—especially when the family has no sense of closure. More details regarding the Aiken Doe are covered, as is one host’s meeting with Augusta DA Natalie Paine and the outcomes of that meeting. Mixed and mastered by Tom Young of Funk Bungalow.

Episode 5: Q&A  

Episode 5: Q&A. There’s  an interview regarding researching case with Micheal Whelan of the Unresolved Podcast, a discussion regarding human trafficking with Alex Trouteaud, Director of Policy and Research for Demand Abolition, an interview with Winter Wheeler, civil attorney, who tackles legal questions,  answers from both hosts to viewer questions, including those about the Aiken Jane Doe, and further interview material from Shanta Sturgis, the twins’ sister.  If you have more questions, we'll do a second Q&A episode in the future. Check out the Facebook page and discussion group, as we’re providing listeners with avenues to act in support of the twins and their family.

Episode Four: Theories  

In Episode 4: Theories, we sort through the plausible and possible, examine possible involvement by local offenders like Joseph Patrick Washington, discuss sex trafficking, and look at some of the more popular internet discussions concerning the case. Episode 4: Theories was produced and mastered by Tom Young of Funk Bungalow. Theme music courtesy of Valentine Sosnitskiy, CC by 3.0.

Episode 3: Hearsay  

In this episode, the concept of “hearsay”—and all of the rumors, gossip, and misinformation that have appeared in this case—are addressed. We go through the twins’ file, their removal from the NCMEC database, experiences at school, allegations of juvenile records and foster placement, and even current problems developing open lines of communication with law enforcement.

Episode 1: Augusta Remastered

“Episode 1: Augusta” introduces the city and some important aspects of the girls' case, as well as important issues that will be investigated as the podcast continues--namely, why their case was closed, the inaccuracies in the official record, and a possible perpetrator. This episode gives listeners a feel for Augusta, the neighborhood in which the girls disappeared, and the lack of support for the runaway theory.

The second episode will address the day of their disappearance and law enforcement's involvement--and the actions that led to the case being closed and the twins marked as "found."  Please subscribe and share to spread the word about Jeannette and Dannette Millbrook: misnamed, misclassified, and missing for 27 years.
