Curiouscast introduces first fiction podcasts, new investigative series on China

Corus Entertainment’s Curiouscast network is introducing three new podcasts this spring, including two fiction titles and an investigative political series looking at China.

China Rising – Launches May 13

Following the success of its Russia Rising podcast, Curiouscast and Global News introduce a 10-episode second season investigating modern China. Hosted by Global News Senior Correspondent and Video Journalist Jeff Semple, China Rising looks at how the Chinese government is quietly applying pressure and working to infiltrate the upper echelons of power in western countries, including Canada. It also discusses whether China is indeed friendly and peaceful, as President Xi claims, or if Canada and its allies should be on guard against China Rising. 


Marsfall (Season 3) – Launches May 24

A fictional sci-fi series, Marsfall takes listeners to the year 2047 and the early colonization of Mars. Each episode continues the story from a different character’s perspective as the colonists try to make a home on the Red Planet, led by fearless commander Jacki O’Rania and assisted by artificial intelligence unit ANDI. New episodes will be released bi-weekly.



Escaping Denver – Launches June 7

Curiouscast’s first original fiction podcast, Escaping Denver is an adventure series, following characters Sara and Noah, who wake up in complete darkness, trapped miles below Denver International Airport (DIA) with no hope for escape from a mind-bending labyrinth filled with unimaginable horrors. Escaping Denver dives into the deep end of conspiracy theories surrounding the Denver International Airport. New episodes will be released bi-weekly.

“Telling powerful stories and introducing new voices is why we created the Curiouscast Podcast Network,” said Chris “Dunner” Duncombe, Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Curiouscast, in a release. “These three new podcasts build on that goal and push us into brand new lanes in podcasting.”
