TPD 106 - Veronica Volk from Finding Tammy Jo


Veronica Volk, reporter from WXXI in Rochester, NY is my guest and we talk about the podcast she co-hosted (with Gary Craig from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle) called "Finding Tammy Jo".  This story is an amazing one about a young victim of murder in western New York and the search for her identity and killer. Told across 8 episodes, "Finding Tammy Jo" tells the tale of who this young woman was and the search to learn what happened to her back in 1979. Veronica tells us her story about joining WXXI, the origin story of the podcast, working with Gary, interviewing these guests and the local communities reaction to this amazing show they have created! It's a quick, but required listen, in my opinion!
