A new #2 podcast from Wondery

LISTEN · · 4.7 minutes to read
  • Hey, weirdos! Morbid, which recently switched from Audioboom to Wondery, has debuted at #2 in Podtrac’s top 20 US podcasts chart for June, its first month with the network. Its old home, Audioboom, doesn’t participate in Podtrac.

  • Podio is a service based in Dubai that appears to download podcast audio and then plays a selection of them from its own servers in a radio-like stream. Shows streamed in this way include NPR’s Planet Money, WSJ’s The Journal, and Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend. It also appears to stream excerpts of Joe Rogan, and is pulling our podcast into its service somewhere. While we’re sure that site owner Uber Media has organised the right licenses, our email enquiry to them bounced.

  • Eddy, the audio editor that works like a word processor, now lets you edit video too. It’s also faster and more stable, the company says.

Who Killed Daphne?
Corruption and injustice can be found across the globe, but what happens when journalists put everything on the line to uncover the truth? Who Killed Daphne? is new from Wondery, examines the events and secrets surrounding the death of reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was killed by a car bomb outside her house. It was released yesterday.
Love & Noraebang
“We think it’s going to be one of the best shows of the summer”, we’re told about Love & Noraebang, which drops a trailer today. It’s a fun romantic comedy podcast set in contemporary Los Angeles. The immersive sound design and score integrates K-Pop, Reggaeton, Pop Ballads, Latin Trap, and of course, Noraebang (the Korean version of karaoke - we saved you a Google).
Was it Real?  The Hills Rewatch
Was it Real? The Hills Rewatch is launched today - a walk down memory lane with the first ever cast-hosted The Hills rewatch podcast. What really happened in the hit reality series, and was it all real? It’s new from Kast Media today.
Threatened launches its third season today: a podcast about answering the call to protect the birds and places we love. Host Ari Daniel invites listeners to see how humans are working to protect the birds of Hawai‘i, and how the lives of these birds are connected with the lives of the Hawaiian people.
With a taste of a poison paradise, I’m addicted to you. Don’t you know that you’re toxic? DISGRACELAND is back for season 10 - starting with a two-part opener on Britney Spears, and her stalkers, paparazzi, and conservatorship. One of her stalkers had over 40,000 hours of footage of her. He sounds nice.

Defend Shirley Wheeler

Slow Burn
In the early 1970s, before Roe made its way to the Supreme Court, Shirley Wheeler–for a short time–became the face of abortion rights in America and “Defend Shirley Wheeler” became its rallying cry. Slow Burn's new season focusing on Roe vs Wade is being marketed with billboards in states across the US that have some of the strictest abortion laws throughout the country, like Jackson MS, Boise ID and, pictured above, in Oaklahoma City, OK.
