A Batman podcast just overtook Joe Rogan to reach number 1 on Spotify
Batman Unburied, a brand new podcast from David S. Goyer, has overtaken The Joe Rogan Experience as the #1 podcast on Spotify in the US and many other countries around the world.
The first two episodes of Batman Unburied were released on May 3, and Spotify podcasts reveal that it now holds the No. 1 spot and has overtaken The Joe Rogan Experience, MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories, Crime Junkie, and Anything. Goes with Emma Chamberlain in the top five.
Goyer, who was a writer on Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Batman v Superman, is leading the project which stars the MCU’s Winston Duke as Bruce Wayne.
Joining Duke on the narrative podcast are Hasan Minhaj as The Riddler, Jason Isaacs as Alfred, Gina Rodriguez as Barbara Gordon, Lance Reddick as Thomas Wayne, Toks Olagundoye as Martha Wayne, John Rhys-Davies as Dr. Hunter and Ashly Burch as Vicki Vale .
“A serial killer known as The Harvester terrorizes Gotham City, but Batman does not come to the rescue,” reads the official description for Batman Unbuied. “In fact, Bruce Wayne has no memory of being the Caped Crusader. Instead, Bruce is a medical examiner, performing the autopsy on the latest victim when attacked by the killer himself.
“As Bruce’s obsession with the Harvester consumes him, Gotham City Hospital Director Dr. Thomas Wayne orders his son to go on sick leave and seek treatment from an unusual psychologist, Dr. Hunter. With Batman missing, Detective Barbara Gordon is left with no choice but to enlist the help of Gotham’s second smartest detective: The Riddler.”
New episodes will be released every Tuesday exclusively on Spotify and each episode will be released in nine different languages.
