Somebody Somewhere is the First Independently Produced Podcast Series to Join WarnerMedia’s Portfolio of Leading Audio Content
Somebody Somewhere Season 2 Premieres June 11 with New Weekly Episodes Every Tuesday, Chronicling the Aftermath of the Unsolved Murders in a Seattle Homeless Encampment
WarnerMedia Podcast Network today announced the launch of Season two of Somebody Somewhere, the popular podcast documentary series hosted by former prosecutor David Payne and former CNN producer Jody Gottlieb. In conjunction with RainStream Media, a Seattle-based media company, Somebody Somewhere is the first partnership of its kind for WarnerMedia Podcast Network, with its' content independent of any television, video or digital brand. Somebody Somewhere Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, June 11 and will be available for download at WarnerMedia Podcast Network, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn and Google Podcasts.
Season two of Somebody Somewhere follows Payne and Gottlieb as they chronicle the 2016 double homicide in a homeless encampment known as “The Jungle.” The homicide left the City of Seattle reeling, while three homeless teenage brothers were arrested and charged with the crimes. Payne and Gottlieb monitor the trial of the three brothers charged in the homicide and reinvestigate the evidence in this still unresolved case.
“Partnering with RainStream Media on season two of Somebody Somewhere and bringing them under the WarnerMedia umbrella is a strategic next step for us,” said Tyler Moody, general manager and vice president, WarnerMedia Podcast Network. “This partnership allows us to expand WarnerMedia’s footprint in the podcast arena and engage fans with new and original audio content. David and Jody’s award-winning investigative storytelling experience is a great fit for our growing podcast portfolio as we add more entertainment and suspense-based audio content.”
“Story is king,” said co-creator & executive producer of Somebody Somewhere, Jody Gottlieb. "As a content creator, it’s empowering to partner with a company who supports enterprise investigative reporting and storytelling.” David Payne, co-creator, writer and host of the podcast added, “Partnering with WarnerMedia is a great way for an independent podcast like ours to get noticed in this landscape of 1000s of podcasts. We’re thrilled to build on the success of season one and to tell this important story to the growing audience of podcast listeners.”
