Blood & Gold, a new audio fiction podcast from Realm, stars Richard Cabral
Realm, the audio entertainment company with more than 30 fiction podcasts in the top charts, just released Realm Original Blood & Gold starring Emmy-nominated, Richard Cabral (“Mayans M.C.,” and “American Crime”), and is co-written by producer Peter Murrieta and award-winning author, Jeff Mariotte (“Empty Rooms” and “The Slab).
This edge-of-your-seat action thriller transports you back in time to a place where only the strong survive, and only the purest of loves create hope for a better future. To some, he was a hero. To others, a villain. He stained 19th-century California with the blood of his enemies. He was a desperado, a leader, an avenger for his people… and inspiration for Hollywood’s Zorro. Written by one of his descendants, this is the story of how Joaquin Murrieta becomes a legend.
Cabral said: “I’m truly excited to release this project to the world. The Realm team has created an immersive listening experience that weaves together the social implications of being a Mexican living in the territory annexed by the U.S. during the Mexican-American war. It’s masterful storytelling told through the eyes of someone who lived it, and now you, the world, have an opportunity to see it through those eyes."
“Working with Jeff to get the story of my ancestor out into the world in this way was a dream come true to me and my family. Que Viva Joaquin!” - Peter Murrieta, co-writer and Joaquin Murrieta’s direct descendant
“Richard Cabral’s performance in this series is truly thrilling, heart-wrenching, and completely captivating. We’re so grateful to be working with Richard, Peter Murrieta, Jeff Mariotte, and Russell Binder on bringing this incredible story to listeners everywhere this fall.” —Molly Barton, Realm CEO and Co-Founder
