PHILADELPHIA, PA – October 23, 2019 – Pineapple Street Studios today unveiled plans to produce The Catch and Kill Podcast with Ronan Farrow in partnership with the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and bestselling author Ronan Farrow. The podcast will serve as an audio companion to Farrow’s bestselling book, “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators.”
“‘Catch and Kill’ is full of incredibly compelling men and women and this podcast will give you the opportunity to hear their voices directly, in intimate, candid conversations with me,” said Farrow. “We’ll provide a deeper understanding of the plot that unravels in the book and feature brand new details and pieces of evidence directly from the investigation.”
In the podcast, Farrow will expand on his reporting, talking with key characters in the book about their personal experiences as Farrow investigated and reported on allegations of sexual misconduct by some of the most influential people in the media and entertainment industries. The podcast will also provide broader context about the powerful systems that cover up sexual misconduct, extensively detailed in “Catch and Kill” and in Farrow’s ongoing work for The New Yorker. An early episode, which aired on The New Yorker Radio Hour, featured Farrow interviewing Igor Ostrovskiy, who was initially hired to spy on Farrow and ultimately became an ally and a source.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Ronan on this truly important project,” said Max Linsky, co-head of Pineapple Street Studios. “This is the exact kind of show we want to be making and the type of podcast that can bring new audiences to the medium.”
The Catch and Kill Podcast with Ronan Farrow is slated to launch in November. Further details will be announced at a later date.
