Description

Producer Jonathan Hirsch had a childhood much like yours -- except his family had a secret. They were followers of a controversial spiritual leader named Franklin Jones. To Jonathan’s parents, Franklin Jones was a god, but to people outside the group, Jones was a cult leader. Now, Jonathan is going back, trying to find out what happened -- and whether the group really did become a cult.

Introducing All-American: Tiger Woods

All-American is a new documentary podcast from Stitcher that explores a sports icon each season, starting with Tiger Woods. He’s been world-famous for decades and his story has many chapters that we all know: a phenom's rise, a shocking fall from grace, and debatably the greatest sports comeback of all time. But few people have really gotten to know Tiger Woods - it's been largely left to the media to define who he is. Listen to All-American: Tiger Woods now to find out what the media got right, and what it didn't: applepodcasts.co/allamericanSee omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
