On July 30th 1975, legendary Teamsters leader James Riddle Hoffa vanished, never to be seen again. Go inside Journalist Eric Shawn’s two-decade long quest for the truth as he methodically tracks down clues and investigates the deathbed confession of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran.
S1 E1 (Podcast) New MotiveIn this episode you'll hear from Ed Barnes, the former Fox News producer who worked with me on our Hoffa investigation. Ed was a noted Time magazine correspondent for decades who also was an organized crime investigator for New York State, probing unions, the mob and as it turned out Frank Sheeran.
S1 E4 (Podcast) The Epitome of an Investigative ReporterIn this episode you'll hear from David Ashenfelter. David was a venerable reporter for The Detroit Free Press who covered Jimmy Hoffa and his disappearance for decades. He earned two Pulitzer prizes. The epitome of an investigative reporter if there ever was one.
S1 E5 (Podcast) Dark ForcesIn this episode you'll hear from Dan Moldea, perhaps the nation's most prominent Hoffa expert. He started reporting on the teamsters, and Hoffa, in his early twenties. He was beaten up in the process... and in 1978 wrote the landmark book, "The Hoffa Wars: Teamsters, Rebels, Politicans and the Mob."
S1 E9 (Podcast) Ultimate FateIn this episode you'll hear from Jeff Hansen, a former law enforcement officer in Michigan, who spent years investigating what happened to Jimmy Hoffa. Jeff says Hoffa was cremated at a crematorium very close to the house in Detroit. The only crematorium he says was operating there in 1975.
