iHeartMedia will air Mark Ramsey’s acclaimed podcast Inside Psycho as a 1-hour special adapted from Wondery’s hit podcast throughout the weekend and leading up to Halloween, across the country. The show is a detailed look behind the scenes of the making of the movie Psycho and is a mix of fact and partial fact, transporting listeners closely into the making of one of the most beloved horror films of all time. This marks the first time a made-for-podcast show will air across broadcast radio, introducing podcasts to millions of new listeners. The 1-hour special, as well as the entire Inside Psycho podcast series is also available on iHeartRadio.
“Wondery has a roster of very engaging podcast content and Inside Psycho is no exception,” said Chris Peterson, Senior Vice President of Podcasting for iHeartMedia. “This brand new ‘Podcast Meets Broadcast’ special will be the first of many seasonal podcast events across iHeartMedia stations. Almost everyone has heard of the movie Psycho, which is why the haunting behind-the-scenes accounts told during this 1-hour podcast special makes for the perfect iHeartRadio podcast-to-radio event debut this Halloween. We couldn’t be more excited to share the Inside Psycho podcast with our millions of radio listeners across the country.”
“I’m thrilled and proud that Wondery is working with iHeartRadio to produce this historic event, the first time a podcast will air on broadcast radio,” said Hernan Lopez, CEO of Wondery.
Wondery just released the first episodes of Inside The Exorcist, a sequel to Inside Psycho — also from Mark Ramsey and available on iHeartRadio.
