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. Starting December 4, cohosts and Glamour editors Justine Harman and Elisabeth Egan follow the family’s journey from South Dakota through Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington, and finally to that 100-foot cliff in California.

Unbelievable story, unbelievable podcast! I can’t wait for more episodes.
I was really hopeful this podcast would tell all sides to this story. But the second episode is playing the “poor struggling foster parents” role. As a pediatric RN and a sibling to two adopted children , I find this approach pathetic and a true disgrace to the innocent child. As a mother I understand being overwhelmed. I understand the foster and adoption world from many sides. But these women abused and murdered their children. That is above and beyond “overwhelmed”. These children were innocent victims in two women's agenda. Both women were cruel and horrific. To not say this, to portray these “mothers” as struggling, is one of the many reasons child abuse will never be taken seriously enough.
This podcast grabbed me after the first episode. Very captivating and sheds light onto a tragedy I knew nothing about before. Highly recommend. I am intrigued to see where the story goes!
