VICE News has an Emmy Award-wining nightly newscast called VICE News Tonight. It also has a critically-acclaimed podcast called Chapo: Kingpin on Trial. Now, VICE is adding to its existing podcast lineup with three all-new series that are coming exclusively to Spotify.
Heading VICE’s expanding audio division is Kate Osborn, longtime audio veteran and former producer for NPR, BBC, and Rachel Maddow. As VICE’s Global Director of Audio and Executive Producer across all Spotify podcasts, Osborn will spearhead the company’s expansion into audio. Liz Gateley and Natalie Tulloch will oversee the VICE series from Spotify.
The three upcoming series from VICE are:
Uncommitted: Iowa 2020 takes a deep dive into how the biggest political issues are playing out in a single state. Emmy-Award winning VICE News Correspondent Antonia Hylton hosts the 12-episode series, interviewing candidates, uncovering untold stories, and offering insight into how Iowa became a major player when it comes to deciding America’s next president. Uncommitted: Iowa 2020 will launch on November 12, 2019.
VICE News senior reporter and co-host of Chapo: Kingpin on Trial Keegan Hamilton follows fentanyl around the world from China to the communities the drug impacts in the United States. The eight-episode narrative is scheduled to launch in 2020.
A new VICE series about global politics is coming to Spotify in late 2020. It is sure to blow away your preconceived notions about global politics being boring.
