Here’s what’s back
In September, Science Vs kicked off a new season, giving fans new episodes that take on fads, trends, and the opinionated mob to find out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. This season will cover even more puzzling and enticing topics and debunk the latest trends on social media to inform listeners on what science has to say. From breathing and breathwork, to UFOs to personality tests, there’s a lot it digs into.
Call Her Daddy
Season 4 of Spotify-exclusive podcast Call Her Daddy premiered in mid-September, and in the first episode, host Alex Cooper travels to New Jersey to hang out with “it girl” Alix Earle. She introduces listeners to Alix’s life in a way they haven’t before seen or heard.
For fans who love stories set in a mind-bending time-travel paradox, scripted audio series Case 63 is back for a second season. This installment takes listeners back to 2012, 10 years before the events of the first season, in a riveting second chapter to the saga. Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac reprise their roles, and new voices for the season include Zoë Winters and Arian Moayad. All 10 episodes are available to stream now.
The Spotify original podcast Dissect is back for its 11th season. Once again, host Cole Cuchna has picked a new album to analyze—song by song—and this time around he’s chosen Radiohead’s critically acclaimed 2007 album In Rainbows. In the season premiere, Cole provides a sweeping history of the band, from its origins in Oxford, England, to its historic run of landmark albums like The Bends, OK Computer, and Kid A.
Heavyweight, a podcast that follows Jonathan Goldstein as he examines the past like a therapist with a time machine, is back for Season 8. This season features unconventional love stories: What we owe the people we love, and the extremes we’ll go to in love’s name. Premiering October 5, the first episode introduces us to Lenny, who was Jonathan’s childhood best friend, but they drifted apart as they grew into adulthood. Now, Lenny is dying and needs a friend. So Jonathan makes the call.
Must-listen new shows
Hits the Spot
Also on October 5, Spotify debuts a new weekly video podcast called Hits the Spot. Host Lea Palmieri talks news, stories, insights, and trends with top artists, creators, and tastemakers in a way that only Spotify can.
Breaking Down with Ali Kolbert
Comedy fans should check out the new video podcast Breaking Down with Ali Kolbert. Rising stand-up comedian Ali brings her frank, lively style and unapologetic perspective to conversations with celebrities, experts, and other comedians about everything from pop culture to relationships to mental health. The inaugural season kicked off with Jonathan Van Ness. The Queer Eye personality, stand-up, and author talks healthy versus unhealthy relationships, lesbian reincarnation, and #notallmen. Breaking Down with Ali Kolbert is produced in part by Spotify’s Creator Equity Fund, which powers our commitment to showcasing and uplifting creators from communities that have been historically underrepresented in the audio industry.
The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark
Earlier this year we announced the expansion of our DC universe with a new show: The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark. Comedian and actor Hasan Minhaj reprises his role as The Riddler, a character previously featured in the 2022 global hit Batman Unburied. The show returns to Gotham City and follows Batman (voiced by Colman Domingo) as he begrudgingly teams up with The Riddler to track down a masked vigilante on the loose in Gotham City. The unlikely duo must solve the mystery before they, too, become victims. The eight-episode show, created in partnership with Warner Bros. and DC, will premiere on October 10.
