An 8 episode true crime series about the unsolved murder of a CAL POLY student back in 1996 is topping the itunes charts this week, as new developments unfold in the latest cold case warmed up by a compelling podcast.

Chris Lambert’s Your Own Backyard leads to arrests: Some background
All the attention isn’t leading to a lot of money – Lambert takes no advertising for the self-produced podcast, relying on donations. His is the latest in a line of true-crime podcasts credited with producing results in court.
“Up and Vanished” led a man to confess to killing a Georgia beauty queen. “Serial” helped a convicted murderer initially win an order for a new trial in Maryland, though higher courts overruled that decision. “In the Dark” unearthed new evidence in a case prosecutors dropped instead of seeking a seventh trial against a Mississippi man who spent decades on death row.
Lambert, 33, was just 8 when Smart vanished a short drive up the coast from his home in the small town of Orcutt, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles. It scared him that someone had gone missing and no one knew what happened.
For more than two decades, a billboard featuring a photo of a grinning Smart advertised a $75,000 reward. It’s located near Flores’ mother’s house in the town of Arroyo Grande.
Lambert passed it many times and it ultimately motivated him to start investigating.

I wanna talk about my favorite go-to kitchen ingredient that I’ve been using for so long, I finally reached out to the company and told them I need to start talking about them on the show…
Two words – PORK. PANKO.
With more protein per ounce than beef jerky, zero carbs and a high tolerance for heat (so it gets all crispy), Pork Panko is my secret ingredient at almost every meal!
I’ve used it in a million casseroles as a crisp topping on cauliflower Mac n cheese, i use it in meatballs, I make bomb ass bar-style chicken tenders and onion rings with it…the possibilities are ENDLESS. I even sprinkled them over Brussels sprouts last night and they were PERFECTION.
With the rise low-carb eating, pork panko is the perfect addition to any dish that calls for breadcrumbs because it adds an umami crisp without the carbs.
It’s made with only two ingredients—salt and pork skin—it takes carbs and gluten out of the equation and it tastes amazing!
You might be thinking, “but Gina! Pork rinds have a funky smell and are too oily for me to cook with!”
To that, I’d say, “your pork panko prayers have been answered bc this breadcrumb substitute has no over powering smell and is literally like a light, fluffy magical pork dust!”
