CuriousCast's award-winning podcast, Deadman's Curse, is back with season two

Press Release · Toronto, ON, Canada ·

You’ve heard the story of the lost goldmine, but what about the startling disappearance of the gold-seekers themselves? The Deadman’s Curse team is back Monday, June 3 with a haunting new tale, Deadman’s Curse: Volcanic Gold – the second season in the popular podcast series.

On a night cold enough to freeze your bones, a prospector searching for a legendary lost gold mine in the wilderness of British Columbia vanishes without a trace – deeming him a possible victim of the curse. Host and explorer Kru Williams aims to solve the mystery of the disappearance as he retraces the steps of the fortune seekers looking for 'the motherload’ – billions of dollars’ worth of gold.

Season two of this historical true crime podcast, produced by Great Pacific Media (GPM), Curiouscast and Corus Entertainment, will leave listeners wanting more with every new episode.
