Ronan Farrow is expanding on his best selling nonfiction book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators” with a new podcast, “The Catch and Kill Podcast With Ronan Farrow,” Variety reported Tuesday.
Set to launch in November, the podcast will serve as an audio companion to the book, which details accusations of sexual misconduct by powerful media figures and the measures taken to keep the stories secret. It will showcase new interviews, and new audio material, according to Variety.
The podcast will be produced with Pineapple Street Studios, a division of Entercom Communications. Speaking to Variety, Max Linsky, co-head of Pineapple Street Studios, said the limited series will last five to 10 half-hour episodes available on a wide variety of podcast platforms.
Representatives for Farrow and Pineapple Street Studios did not immediately respond to requests for comment from TheWrap.
Released Oct. 15, “Catch and Kill” details the Pulitzer-winning reporter’s extensive investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s behavior toward women, as well as his experiences doing so at NBC News, where he first worked on his exposé before taking it to The New Yorker. NBC News has aggressively denied some of the reporting and details of Farrow’s account of his experiences at the network in the book, which unearths a lot of new material. Weinstein, who has pleaded not guilty in his upcoming criminal trial, has also denied some of the reporting in the book.
