Extending its investment in podcasting, iHeartMedia announced a partneship with European podcast platform Podimo to translate and adapt podcasts “across the globe in different languages.”
The announcement was made by Podimo Chief of Strategic Relations Eva Lægdsgaard and iHeartPodcast Network President Conal Byrne.
They’ll start with the true crime podcast “Forgotten: Women of Juárez,” or in Spanish, “Olvidadas: Muertes de Juárez” in Spanish, German and Danish.
The podcast investigates theories about the disappearance of hundreds of young women in the city of Juárez, some found with symbols carved into their bodies or their wrists bound.
The adapted series will be released early next year in 20 countries in Latin America, Spain and the United States, with Germany and Denmark to follow.
