Among those influential media spaces is the “Murdaugh Murders,” the popular podcast hosted by reporters Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell that helped introduce audiences to the South Carolina legal dynasty and its alleged crimes for the first time. At nearly 100 episodes, the podcast has 28,000 reviews and ranked first globally in 2021, according to Apple Podcasts.

In a Friday interview, Farrell said she barely slept at her South Carolina home after finding out about the verdict and live-streaming with Matney about what they had just witnessed. Farrell said she was still processing a guilty verdict that she “didn’t think was going to happen.”

“It’s kind of like when you set your expectations low and it exceeds your expectations,” she told The Post, adding that she cried when the verdict was announced. “It’s been crazy.”
