iHeartPodcasts, Curiosity debut Red Elvis podcast

December 1, 2022

iHeartPodcasts, Curiosity and School of Humans wll debut Red Elvis, a new narrative podcast in the Curiosity Audio Network. Red Elvis explores the life and death of Dean Reed, an American singer and actor who struggled in Hollywood during the late 1950s but became a superstar behind the Iron Curtain. Listeners can hear Red Elvis on iHeartRadio and anywhere podcasts are heard beginning December 7th.

After decades living abroad and speaking out against the American government, Reed died mysteriously months after telling friends and family he planned to come home to the US. Was it an accident? Did he commit suicide? Or was he killed for his political beliefs?

Dean Reed’s daughter Ramona Reed is the host and executive producer of Red Elvis. Over six episodes, she explores her father’s legacy and the unanswered questions surrounding his death.

The podcast is based on the Curiosity original documentary Red Elvis: The Cold War Cowboy produced by Talos Films and directed by Thomas Latter. The film is available to watch now on Curiosity’s flagship sreaming service Curiosity Stream.
