Hi-diddley-ho Castologerinos! This week Nick delves into the world of US politics and the 2020 election with The Wilderness. Liz finds a podcast that asks you to be the detective and crack the crime case with Solve. Then Zane tells everyone else to shut up a second by recommending Shut Up A Second. Then it's onto the reviews!
Liz Recommends - Solve
You’ve listened to every true crime podcast, lost days on the Zodiac killer subReddit, and googled so many serial killers you’re probably on some watchlist. By now you consider yourself a seasoned detective. There’s just one thing missing: you’ve never been given a real case to crack.
Enter SOLVE, the world’s first interactive murder-mystery podcast that puts you at the center of the investigation. Each week on SOLVE, you’ll be assigned a new case, based on real true crimes, that will test your skills as a detective. You’ll interrogate new suspects, piece together evidence, and scour distinct crime scenes to track down murderers hiding in plain sight. SOLVE premieres December 16th on Apple Podcasts, the iHeart Radio app, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. One crime. Four suspects. Can you SOLVE these crimes?
Listeners are invited to decipher clues embedded in leaked audio files, voicemails, courtroom testimony, and other evidence to try to find the killer.
The L.A.-based startup has raised $20 million in funding from Elisabeth Murdoch, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Upfront Ventures and Shari Redstone’s Advancit Capital.
Solve first debuted as an original Snapchat Show in May 2018 as an interactive murder mystery show, in which the audience takes on the role of the detective. Viewers interview suspects and analyze key evidence to try to solve cases inspired by true crimes. So far, about 150 episodes of “Solve” have been produced for Snapchat, with new instalments premiering weekly.
The Solve podcast series was produced in partnership with iHeartMedia and SALT Audio, the production company that has worked on top scripted podcasts “Blackout,” starring and executive produced by Rami Malek (from QCode and Endeavor Content) and “Carrier” (from QCode).
Next year, Solve plans to launch projects in “every other media you can think of,” including video games, Wright said.
For both: Any ep that takes your fancy.
