Here's What I've Heard is a serialized audio documentary that investigates family stories through one-on-one interviews and careful research. Our team believes that every family has a story worth telling—but not every family agrees on how the story should be told. Here's What I've Heard will explore a new story each season to find the truth behind each family's collective memory.

Season One

On November 6, 1965, the Kline family was traveling northbound on the Avenal cutoff when their vehicle was hit head-on by a drunk driver. Gerald and Linda Kline, along with their baby daughter, Theresa, were killed almost instantly. Their two young sons, Jerry and Paul, survived—but would forever wonder about the life that could have been.

In the premiere season of Here's What I've Heard, we'll follow Jerry's daughter, Courtney, as she searches for answers about the accident, speaks to those involved to learn details about the tragedy and uncovers an aftermath that's steeped in romance, revenge and murder.

Who Would Like Here’s What I’ve Heard?

If you like true crime, history or storytelling podcasts, Here’s What I’ve Heard is probably perfect for you. The producers were inspired by a number of similar podcasts, such as Serial, RadioLab, Crimetown, This American Life and Someone Knows Something, among others.

What You're Funding

Production on Here's What I've Heard is already underway, but there are costs associated with podcasting that we need help covering. In addition to web hosting, administrative tools and mixing fees, our producers will need to travel as they conduct interviews and visit the scene of the event. The faster we receive funding, the more quickly we can bring Season Two straight to your podcast feed!
