Mandy Matney


Jim Click Automotive Team

Mandy Matney is an independent journalist and media disrupter originally from Kansas City, Kan., who has worked for newspapers in Missouri, Illinois and South Carolina before launching Luna Shark Media and three chart topping podcasts, "Murdaugh Murders Podcast" (#1 now known as "True Sunlight") and "Cup of Justice" (#1).

Matney’s first podcast sparked a global analysis of the “Good Old Boy System” in South Carolina, the different set of rules for the privileged, laid bare. Matney’s approach exposed a system that illuminates the substantially different applications of justice for families without connections to the highest reaches of power.

Her book is "Blood on Their Hands."
