THE DISAPPEARANCE OF
On January 27, 2017, a 20-year-old college student named Elaine Park left her ex-boyfriend’s home in Calabasas, CA. Five days later, her Honda Civic was found abandoned on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, not far from the home of Rolling Stone contributing editor Neil Strauss and his wife Ingrid. The two of them, along with their neighbors Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger and concert violinist Ann Marie Simpson formed an unlikely investigative team determined to find out: What happened to Elaine Park? This podcast covers a four-year search for answers in which they soon learned: Everyone is a suspect.
