    Bill Maher

    Podcast Host · HBO Podcasts
    Bill Maher was born William Maher in New York City, New York, and grew up in River Vale, New Jersey. His father, William Aloysius Maher, Jr., who was of Irish descent, was a radio announcer and news editor. His mother, Julie (Berman), was a nurse, who was from a Jewish family. Maher was raised in his father's Catholic faith. While attending Cornell University, he decided to try stand-up comedy. His first stand-up routine was in a Chinese restaurant on Route 17 in Paramus, NJ. He soon landed a regular gig at Catch a Rising Star in New York City. After a few years, he became a regular host at the club and was spotted by a scout for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962). Maher made numerous appearances on the show, and Carson had been a hero of his since childhood, but he always felt constrained by the rules of network television. During this time, he appeared in films and made guest appearances on numerous sitcoms. In 1993, Maher was offered his own talk show by Comedy Central. Maher developed the show as a round table discussion on current events. Politically Incorrect (1993) premiered to critical acclaim and attracted major celebrities as well as politicians and pundits. In 1997, the show moved to ABC where it aired to continued success. On September 17, 2001, Maher made controversial comments regarding the terrorists who orchestrated the September 11 attack on the US. Sponsors pulled their ads and affiliates refused to air the show. ABC canceled the show in 2002, citing "low ratings". Maher had been nominated for 11 Emmys for his work on the show. In 2003, he was able to continue his television work with a similar program on HBO titled Real Time with Bill Maher (2003). He remains single and lives in Los Angeles.

    Payne Lindsey is an Atlanta-based director, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and the co-creator and host of the hit podcast ‚ÄúUp and Vanished.‚ÄĚ Driven by a new found passion for both the true crime genre and investigative journalism, Lindsey decided to investigate the disappearance of beauty queen and school teacher Tara Grinstead, a notorious decade-old cold case from South Georgia. At the time, he hoped to develop Tara‚Äôs story into his own documentary film project. As Lindsey chronicled his investigation in real-time, week by week, in audio form, he ventured into a new field, podcasting. The events of the next 12 months turned Tara Grinstead‚Äôs case into one of the biggest crime stories of the year. With over 150 million downloads, ‚ÄúUp and Vanished‚ÄĚ propelled Grinstead‚Äôs case into the mainstream media, uncovering new evidence that helped to crack the 11-year-old cold case in early 2017 and lead to two arrests. On the strength of the podcast‚Äôs success, Lindsey launched Atlanta-based content creation company Tenderfoot TV, along with his business partner Donald Albright. Under Tenderfoot TV, Lindsey will take on a new case in ‚ÄúUp and Vanished: Season 2,‚ÄĚ take his documentary skillset to the TV screen with a docu-series for ‚ÄúUp and Vanished‚ÄĚ in development with Oxygen, as well as investigate the infamous Atlanta Child Murders in a brand-new podcast ‚ÄúAtlanta Monster.‚ÄĚ The core of Lindsey‚Äôs work, whether it is investigating, podcasting, or directing, continues to be storytelling that serves as a catalyst for change.

    In a nutshell, I’m someone with a background in food and journalism who likes to eat, travel & take pictures as I go. Starting this brand was merely a happy accident. I am someone who has always loved & worked in food. I worked in restaurants for 10 years and went to culinary school. However, I mostly learned how to love food from my mother. She was a single parent who worked all day and came home to create magic from the refrigerator for our family every night. I have been fortunate to travel quite a bit, and all of my best memories of those trips revolve around food. To me, it is the best window into a new culture. I had sushi at 4am in Tokyo at Tsukiji Market, ate arepas as I walked through Pablo Escobar’s dilapidating house in Medellin, & inhaled street food all over Southeast Asia that probably should have killed me. I could spend every day of my life at La Boqueria in Barcelona, Pikes Place Market in Seattle, or Central Market in Florence. Plant me on a culinary adventure, and I’m a happy camper. In August of 2016 I walked away from a corporate job to run One Hungry Jew full time. I learned how to create content that I am proud of, and to me that was worth more than a traditional weekly paycheck. This has been an exciting journey into food & photography, but the best gift has been the people I’ve gotten to meet and share this with along the way. Drop me a line, say hello, ask me whatever. Thank you for stopping by and sharing what I love with me!

    On Dec. 7, 2009, Susan Powell disappeared. From the start, police suspected that her husband, Josh, was responsible, but until they found hard evidence, they weren‚Äôt able to press charges. They didn‚Äôt get that evidence in time. A little over two years later, on Feb. 5, 2012, Josh killed their two children, Charlie and Braden, and himself. With their lead suspect dead, police declared the Susan Powell case ‚Äúcold‚ÄĚ on May 21, 2013. For the last three years, I have been investigating the case myself. I've filed a public records request to get ahold of every document I can, I‚Äôve visited the case scenes, I‚Äôve interviewed the people involved, and I‚Äôve put together everything I‚Äôve learned in my podcast ‚ÄúCold‚ÄĚ. I believe that Susan‚Äôs story shows patterns of abuse that echo in families all over the world. I believe that Josh was groomed, by his father, to be a controlling and cruel husband. I believe that Susan knew she was in an abusive relationship but was unable to escape. It is my hope that telling her story will help people in abusive relationships recognize these problems and will keep them from suffering what she endured.
