WHAT: iHeartMedia and Grim & Mild today launched the first episode of “12 Ghosts,” an original fictional podcast from Aaron Mahnke, creator of “13 Days of Halloween.” The podcast, starring Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), is a 12-part ghostly anthology series with a festive twist, offering 12 spooky stories for the 12 days of Christmas and released daily through Christmas Eve.
In the midst of a massive blizzard, 11 strangers find themselves stranded in an old inn on Christmas Eve. With no escape, and strangely compelled by the old innkeeper (Malcom McDowell), each stranger discovers something they have in common: everyone has a secret spectral tale. Produced in 3D binaural sound, listeners will be transported to Mulligan’s Inn as they follow each storyteller into their nightmares and experience a timeless, frightening tale.
WHEN: The first episode launches today, December 14, with subsequent episodes dropping daily through Christmas Eve.
WHERE: “12 Ghosts” is distributed by iHeartPodcasts and is available on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard.
