About the Host
As a director and award-winning documentary filmmaker, Payne Lindsey has always had a passion for the true crime genre. Last year, the Atlanta based former music video director ventured into the field of podcasting, dedicating his time to investigating a decade-old cold case from South Georgia, the disappearance of Tara Grinstead. The podcast, ‘Up and Vanished‘, propelled Grinstead’s case into the mainstream media with over 150 million downloads, helping to break the 12 year old mystery wide open. Now, this citizen sleuth aims to tell new compelling stories and take on his next challenging case.
