PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 25, 2019 – Tomorrow, November 26, Pineapple Street Studios, a division of RADIO.COM, will launch the first episode of a new limited-run series, The Catch and Kill Podcast, in partnership with Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and bestselling author Ronan Farrow. The podcast will feature all-new conversations with key characters from Farrow’s reporting on Harvey Weinstein, and raw, revealing, never-before-heard audio recordings from Farrow’s investigative work for his New York Times bestselling book, “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators.”
“Writing ‘Catch and Kill, I kept thinking about the people I met during my reporting,” said Farrow. “The sources who brought the story to light and the operatives who tried to suppress it. The whistleblowers, survivors, spies, and journalists. Each is complicated in their own way. Many of them faced difficult, life altering decisions. This podcast is about those people—and giving you a chance to hear their stories, in their own words.”
Episode one, which debuts tomorrow, will feature Farrow interviewing Igor Ostrovskiy, who was hired to spy on Farrow, only to become a whistleblower and source for Farrow’s reporting. Future episodes include a look inside NBC, where executives halted Farrow’s reporting on Weinstein; an insider’s account of a high-stakes police sting operation to catch a sexual predator; and an introduction to the sources inside the National Enquirer who helped Farrow break stories about the tabloid empire’s relationship with Donald Trump.
“The conversations Ronan is having on this show, the risks these sources took to share the truth — it’s inspiring just to be in the room,” said Max Linsky, co-head, Pineapple Street Studios. “What he has revealed about the way that power works in America is truly shocking and we’re proud to be sharing that in a whole new way for podcast listeners.”
The Catch and Kill Podcast has been steadily climbing the Apple Podcasts chart since the trailer was released Friday. No previous Pineapple Street shows have hit No. 1 on the Apple Podcasts chart.
