Seeking Host/Co-Producer for Podcast Project

Thank you for your interest in this new project from Paladin Consulting Detective.

Currently, I'm seeking a host and co-producer for a limited series audio podcast of 5 episodes, to be released after all episodes have been produced. 

The Podcast

This limited series audio podcast, currently untitled, will approach the true crime genre from the unique point of view of the private investigator, with each case/episode having a local or regional connection. Each episode will have a distinct theme:

  • Cold case: draw the national public's attention to a local/regional cold case of note

  • Research: a journalistic investigation of a topical issue of local/regional importance with national relevance

  • Unsolved mystery: investigation of the strange, unusual, and/or occult local legends & urban myths

  • Conspiracy buster: a systematic investigation to separate real facts from false & fake conspiracy theories

  • Working detective: a look into the inner workings of the PI biz
