Audible launches original true crime pod ‘Ghosthunter’
Australia has a new true crime podcast covering paranormal activity, a family’s terrible secret and a police investigation.
Audible has now released Ghosthunter, which follows the story of Jason King, and delves into his unwavering belief in the supernatural and how it could be the key to unlocking his forgotten childhood.
The new podcast is part family memoir and part true crime.
With documentarian Ben Lawrence on board, things get complicated when a three-year police investigation interrupts their research into the King family’s murky past.
“You never know how deep the rabbit hole will take you,” says Lawrence.
“There were so many personal twists and turns over the seven years creating Ghosthunter that I found myself deeply immersed in Jason’s life, I was even the best man at his wedding.”
“The podcast format meant we were also free to spend an extended amount of time telling the story, giving Ghosthunter the space and detail it needed to develop fully.”
Audible director of original content Ben Naparstek added; “Listeners will find themselves captivated by the premium sound experience and narrative of Ghosthunter as it examines the intrinsic way human beings deal with trauma.”
“Listeners are taken on a captivating audio journey of paranormal ghost hunts, court hearings and the raw emotion of people faced by hard truths.”
Five episodes are now live.
Ghosthunter is now available exclusively on Audible free for members or with a 30-day free trial.
