Recently, Warner Bros. and Spotify Studios teamed up for a new narrative podcast. Titled Batman Unburied, the series was created by David S. Goyer and features the voices of Winston Duke, Hasan Minhaj, and Gina Rodriguez. The first two episodes were made available to stream on May 5, 2022, and in its initial debut, the podcast has already topped The Joe Rogan Experience for the #1 spot.
The success of this podcast on Spotify is perhaps a testament to the fact that audiences seem to have a renewed excitement for the character, much of which can be attributed to the critical and commercial success of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, which is now available to stream exclusively on HBO Max. Also, given that the audio streaming giant has been the exclusive home for The Joe Rogan Experience since September 2020, the fact that this has dethroned the controversial podcast from its number one spot is no small feat.
Here is the synopsis for Spotify’s Batman Unburied podcast:
“A serial killer known as The Harvester terrorizes Gotham City, but Batman is not coming to the rescue. In fact, Bruce Wayne has no memory of being the Caped Crusader at all. Instead, Bruce is a forensic pathologist, performing the autopsy on the latest victim when he’s attacked by the killer himself. As Bruce’s obsession with the Harvester consumes him, Dr. Thomas Wayne, head of Gotham City Hospital, orders his son to take medical leave and seek treatment from an unusual psychologist, Dr. Hunter. With Batman missing in action, Detective Barbara Gordon is left with no other choice but to seek help from Gotham’s second smartest detective: The Riddler. Batman Unburied is created by David S. Goyer and stars Winston Duke, Hasan Minhaj, and Gina Rodriguez. Batman Unburied was produced by Phantom Four & Wolf at the Door in association with Blue Ribbon Content and DC for Spotify.”
New episodes of the podcast are available to stream on Spotify every Tuesday. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the Caped Crusader, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
