Murdertown is a cold case investigation podcast hosted by Gary Pascal and Shannon Noll, two DePaul-trained actors and world-trained journalists. They travel to Chatapicnic, Wisconsin to investigate the state's most notorious unsolved murder: Catskill "Bones" McGillivray, the jovial and beloved mayor of neighboring Briggsville. But Gary and Shannon soon discover that the mystery of Chatapicnic runs much deeper than one man's death - because a bunch of other people are getting murdered all the time.
