Boise teachers, friends, true-crime lovers: Thin Air missing persons …

Best friends. True-crime fans. Storytellers.

That’s the simplest description of the Boise duo behind “Thin Air,” a podcast that for the past 16 months has been renewing public interest in cold cases involving missing people from across the United States.

Jordan Sims and Daniel Calderon, both 30-something schoolteachers, have long shared a fascination for reality TV shows such as “Big Brother” and “Survivor,” and true-crime shows such as “48 Hours Mystery,” “20/20,” and “Forensic Files.”

They got the idea to do their podcast when their favorite TV show, Investigation Discovery’s “Disappeared,” went off the air for a few years (it came back in mid-2016).

“To fill the void in our lives,” said Sims, who remembered calling Calderon one night to tell him she had an idea for a podcast — and the name for it.

Review: ‘Dinner With Friends’ at Greenbelt Arts Center

‘Dinner With Friends’ serves broken relationships, dreams

Why do people break up, but never make up? Is having kids a sacrifice or a blessing? Are some people not just built for marriage? Is marriage in Western Society obsolete? Should men join the MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) movement? These questions and more are raised in Greenbelt Arts Center’s production of Dinner with Friends. Excellently directed by Bob Kleinberg (his fifth directorial outing with Greenbelt Arts Cent er), the show follows the breakdown of the marriage of Tom (played with a powerful pathos by Brian Lewandowski) and Beth (the excellent Jenna Jones Paradis, last seen at Greenbelt Arts Center in Chapter Two), and the larger breakup from their best-friend-couple Gabe (Jim Adams, last seen in Greenbelt Arts Center’s Raisin in the Sun) and Karen (Michelle Johncock).

Crissy Campbell and her friend Dawn Donaldson were murdered by Sam Strange

Nightmare Next Door explores the case of two teen girls who went missing overnight from the town of Grass Valley, Cal.

16-year-old Dawn Donaldson and her best Friend Crissy Campbell disappeared one night and rumors flew of abduction and runaways as detectives desperately tried to track them down.

Sadly they had been brutally murdered by 20-year-old local man Sam Strange and their bodies dumped by the side of the road in nearby woods.

Strange has always maintained his innocence and said he did dispose of the bodies but only because the real perpetrators threatened his family.

However, the sledgehammer and axe used to kill the girls were from his garage and his
