About The Podcast

Here's What I've Heard is a serialized audio documentary that investigates family stories through one-on-one interviews and careful research. 

During Season One, we'll explore the tragic accident that claimed the lives of 24-year-old Gerald Kline, 21-year-old Linda Kline and 15-month-old Theresa Kline. Through years of research and with help from family members, Gerald and Linda's granddaughter, Courtney, has carefully pieced together the bigger picture of what happened on the Avenal Cutoff on November 6, 1965—and the events that transpired after the fact. 

The podcast is produced by Courtney Abud and Craig Brown, two writers working out of Austin, TX. For sponsorship information, please contact us.
