We're getting more episodes of the West Cork podcast

Producers Jennifer Forde and Sam Bungey said that more information had been shared with them since the podcast came out.

THE WEST CORK podcast from Audible has gotten everyone talking. The podcast which focuses on the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier who was murdered in her holiday home in West Cork in December 1996.

The podcast has gotten much acclaim from everyone having been named as one of the best podcasts to listen to right now by Time magazine. Even Louis Theroux is excited about it.

The journalists behind the podcast Jennifer Forde and Sam Bungey were talking to Dermot & Dave on Today FM this morning about the podcast and how they got people talk to them about the case.

Ultimately because there’s been no resolution, no peace, everybody is  still just below the surface, desperate for something to happen that will bring this to justice.”

Forde confirmed that people have come forward to share information about the case since the podcast came out including retired detectives in America and locals from West Cork too with ‘questions and theories’.

Excitedly though, they confirmed to the lads that there are ‘already exploring new episodes’ of the hit podcast.

What these new podcasts might explore is uncertain but both Forde and Bungey believe that there are still people who are alive that know more than what is currently known to the public about the case.

I think the only thing you really can say with any certainty is that  based on what everyone knows at the moment it’s impossible to be sure.”

When asked if they thought the new information coming forward had changed their opinions on what happened that night they were cagey enough saying ‘we can’t really talk about it’ which is understandable if a bit frustrating.

Bungey did say that ‘with the upcoming trial in France, it feels like things are moving with this case’ referring to a French court recently ruling that Ian Bailey should face trial for Sophie’s murder in France.

Ian Bailey has been arrested twice in Ireland in connection with Sophie’s murder but has never been charged.

However Bungey did also mention that the current series ‘took 3 years’ so we may be waiting a while.

Whatever the topic of the new episodes, we’ve no doubt that we’ll all be hooked whenever they do arrive. If you haven’t listened to the podcast yet then you can find it on Audible.
