Interview With Dave Cawley, Cold Podcast Host

In this bonus episode of Heart of the Home, we’re stepping away from our regular topics. Our host, Jennifer Stagg, worked for years as an award-winning journalist before launching her interior design career full time. One of the biggest stories she covered was the disappearance of a young Utah mother, Susan Cox Powell. The story captivated the country with its bizarre twists and turns. Now, nearly a decade after her disappearance, Susan’s story is the focus of a viral podcast called Cold. In the series, host Dave Cawley takes an in depth look at the case, including the disturbing interactions between Susan, her husband Josh Powell, and father-in-law Steve Powell. For this bonus edition of Heart of the Home, Dave agreed to sit down with Jen for a one-on-one interview about what he’s uncovered so far, plus his thoughts on the case. Dave’s also giving us a special preview at what’s coming up in this week’s episode of the Cold podcast.

    So nice to hear your perspective and Dave’s in a way that Cold doesn’t really allow on a weekly basis. You articulated some things I felt about covering the case at the time, too. <3

    I’m trying to leave a review but not certain this is the correct place to do so. Bravo to you Jennifer on every week raising the bar on the content! You’re a natural in front of the camera and a wonderful story teller! Keep it up! The cold podcast and your Wednesday night recaps/ commentary is worth staying up late on the east coast!
    Thank you for all you do
