All3Media International, Story Hunter Partner for Podcast


The Midsomer Murders Mayhem podcast is set to launch, marking All3Media International’s first move into podcast commissioning and production.

The 20-episode audio series, produced by Story Hunter, delves into the history of the long-running Midsomer Murders show and discusses the question of how such a quaint county in England can be host to so many murderers and such a staggering death toll.

The podcast, hosted by Nicki Chapman, will launch on March 28, with the feed available to all advertising-supported podcast platforms. The podcast series is distributed by Audioboom.

Currently in postproduction on its 24th season, the Midsomer Murders show is active in nearly 200 territories.

The podcast will also be available on the Midsomer Murders official YouTube page, operated for All3Media International by Little Dot Studios. The channel is also a new home for long-form episodes in North America.

Rachel Glaister, executive VP of brands at All3Media International, said, “The eccentricities of Midsomer Murders and its hero Inspector Barnaby continue to captivate and amuse audiences around the world. That global fanbase is keen to engage with all revelations about the show, and we are confident they’ll appreciate Midsomer Murders Mayhem.”

Kirsty Hunter, managing director of Story Hunter, added, “It has been a privilege to collaborate with All3Media International on Midsomer Murders Mayhem and to work with Nicki Chapman. Podcasting is the ideal medium for the legions of Midsomer fans around the world to revisit their favorite episodes.”
