“We’re kicking off 2018 in an exciting way — with the introduction of three new, original podcasts and the return of several other top original and co-produced shows,” said Brendan Regan, Vice President, U.S. Content & Partnerships at audioBoom. “There’s no better testament to the success of the audioBoom podcast network than demand for second season returns of shows we launched in 2017.”
Upcoming audioBoom podcasts include:
Night Call (debuts February 5, 2018): Tune in as Grantland writer Molly Lambert, Drunk History storyteller Tess Lynch and New York Magazine film critic Emily Yoshida keep you company on “lonely nights and strange days,” chatting about everything on their minds, whether it’s pop culture, internet culture or even half-baked conspiracies. Leave a message on the hotline (240–46-NIGHT) and get their advice on life, love and everything in between — even the coming apocalypse.
Empty Frames (debuts February 6, 2018): One of the most mind-boggling, unsolved art heists of our time involves nearly half a billion dollars of works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas, Manet and more, lifted from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on Saint Patrick’s Day in 1990 by two men dressed as police. Join Lance Reenstierna and Tim Pilleri (producers and co-hosts of hit true crime podcasts Missing Maura Murray and Crawlspace) as they take a deeper look into the case, exploring the most interesting theories and the socioeconomic impact of this unsolved mystery.
Mafia (debuts February 7, 2018): Host Fleet Cooper takes a journey into the underworld of organized crime, exploring the rise and fall of the most notorious mobsters in history. Each episode delves into the rise and fall of another famous mobster — from Charles “Lucky” Luciano and John Gotti, to Donnie Brasco, “Bugsy” Siegel and Dutch Schultz.
“Podcasts have become more popular than ever, and as the medium continues to grow, we’re excited to explore different genres of storytelling and reach new audiences with our original and co-produced podcasts.” said Regan.
