Hope in Darkness: The Josh Holt Story

American Josh Holt and his Venezuelan wife-to-be Thamy fell in love from three thousand miles apart. Just two weeks after their wedding, there was a knock at their door. In the middle of the night, police from the government of Nicolás Maduro burst into their home and took them captive. Their dream relationship turned into a nightmare. From KSL Podcasts, the creators of the hit show Cold, comes Hope in Darkness: The Josh Holt Story. This new 12 part series uncovers the harrowing story of the two years that Josh and Thamy spent inside a notorious Venezuelan prison, punished for crimes they did not commit. From the tireless efforts of their families working to get them home, to the inspiring ways they coped while incarcerated, host Becky Bruce and Josh Holt share this story of devotion, determination, and Hope in Darkness.
