HowStuffWorks and Tenderfoot TV are partnering with iHeartMedia to launch season two of the podcast Monster — Monster: The Zodiac Killer. Emerging from its debut season as 2018’s breakout hit with more than 30 million downloads, season two will be released in early January 2019, with trailers running through December. Under this agreement, the podcast will officially join the iHeartRadio Podcast Network, and iHeartMedia will become the primary distribution partner for all Atlanta Monster and Monster: The Zodiac Killer episodes. The partnership also includes plans for additional seasons to come.
“It’s evident that our listeners across the country continue to have a huge appetite for true crime programs — stories involving real people and actual real crimes. Monster: The Zodiac Killer is not just about exploring the crime, it’s about the people and communities around the crime,” said Darren Davis, President of iHeartRadio and iHeartMedia Networks Group. “Atlanta Monster told a powerful story that delved deep into the societal context and cultural significance of the events that took place. This is true crime flipped on its head, and we know season two will be even more captivating and compelling than the first. We are excited about this partnership and being able to introduce this program to our hundreds of millions of listeners.”
