Witness Docs announces July 7 release for new investigative podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story


Witness Docs, a unit of the pioneering podcast company Stitcher (a subsidiary of SiriusXM), today announced a July 7 release date for their new highly anticipated investigative series Toxic: The Britney Spears Story. The details were first revealed by the hosts, Tess Barker and Babs Gray, in an interview on SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live.

In 2017, comedians Tess Barker and Babs Gray launched their comedy podcast Britney’s Gram. Each week they’d take a light-hearted yet deep dive into Britney Spears’ cryptic Instagram posts. At the time, their biggest dream was for Britney to repost one of their memes. The more they examined her stock photos of roses and inspirational quotes, the more curious they became about the machinations limiting Britney’s rights and finances. They never imagined they’d be sucked into a years-long investigation of the pop princess’s legal rights, and help launch a movement to #FreeBritney.

With Toxic: The Britney Spears Story, Tess and Babs lay out everything listeners need to know about Britney Spears, the controversial conservatorship that gives her father complete control of her career and finances, and the movement of fans trying to end it. They’ll talk to exclusive sources, sift through the conspiracies, and uncover disturbing truths about the conservatorship system that go way beyond Britney.

Listeners can subscribe now via Stitcher, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and wherever podcasts are available.
