Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash. Could these lives have been saved? Broken Harts, a new podcast from Glamour and HowStuffWorks, investigates this question with more than 30 never-before-heard interviews. Cohosts and Glamour editors Justine Harman and Elisabeth Egan and reporter Lauren Smiley follow the family’s journey from South Dakota through Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington, and finally to that 100-foot cliff in California.

Justifies child abuse
This podcast tells an interesting and horrifying story, all to be squashed by the narrator defending and humanizing severely abusive and murderous parents. Infuriating. Disgusting. Unacceptable.
Here’s the story
They are gay. They are gay. They are gay. They are discriminated against because they are gay. They are gay. They adopted kids. They drove them off a cliff. They are gay.
Summary of case, not too much new
This is well made, but just didn’t give me as much information as I was hoping. Unfortunately I don’t think that information is there to find as these women seem like they were very good at hiding their real selves. I love that they are bringing visibility to a case and an issue that doesn’t get enough attention.
