As executive producer on all of Tenderfoot TV’s podcasts, Albright has made it a priority to ensure that Tenderfoot’s projects leave a lasting footprint beyond entertainment. been an integral in ensuring their true crime podcasts are not only entertaining, but most importantly, give authorities tools to uncover new leads and crack these cases that have gone under the radar for too long. “Up and Vanished” helped crack the case of missing schoolteacher and beauty queen Tara Grinstead. It was followed by “Atlanta Monster,” which helped renew interest in the 29 cases of Atlanta’s missing and murdered children, known as the Atlanta Child Murders. The city of Atlanta announced in March 2019 that after 40 years it would be re-examining evidence in these cases. Tenderfoot TV’s popular podcast “To Live and Die in LA,” has given authorities evidence that there was more than one person involved in the death of aspiring Hollywood actress, Adea Shabani, and was named Associated Press’s Top Podcast of 2019.
Albright scaled “Atlanta Monster” into the “Monster” franchise, launching other investigative hits throughout 2019-2020 including “Monster: The Zodiac Killer” and “Monster: DC Sniper.” He’s also behind the no. 1 true crime hit “Culpable” and worked to put out season two of Payne Lindsey’s No. 1 horror anthology podcast, “Radio Rental.” He also serves as executive producer on Tenderfoot TV’s “Up and Vanished” TV docu-series for Oxygen Networks that aired in 2020, and has a variety of television and film projects in development.
