Found Launches New Podcast Series and App
The new additions to the Found brand are presented in conjunction with the stage musical.
The new musical Found and Killer Films Media, in partnership with Wondery, have announced the launch of the Found podcast series and app.
The Found podcast series, recorded and post-produced at Union Editorial in Los Angeles, will explore personal stories of love, loss, hope, transformation and aspiration through the lens of lost and found notes combined with the power of humor and music. The app will feature notes from the podcast, giving users a way to track them on a global map, pin finds to a timeline, invite friends to help piece the Found mysteries together, share inspirational notes on social media, and upload new notes for consideration.
The podcast and app are the next installations in a franchise conceived and created by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and This American Life contributor Davy Rothbart. Rothbart, who will host the series, launched the Found brand in 2001 when he stumbled upon a note meant for a cheating boyfriend that had been mistakenly placed on the windshield of his car. This launch marks the 15-year anniversary for Found Magazine.
The stage musical Found, created by Hunter Bell, Lee Overtree, and Eli Bolin, had its world premiere off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theater in 2014. The show returns to the stage this fall with the Philadelphia Theatre Company production, beginning performances in November.
Beginning today, listeners can subscribe to the Found podcast on iTunes and listen to a sneak preview. The series will also be available here and Google Play, among others. Full episodes will be available every other Wednesday premiering on July 13, followed by weekly updates.
The Found app will be available for download via the Apple AppStore, and fans can interact with the Found podcast by way of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @FOUNDpodcast.
