Podcast network Straw Hut Media has teamed up with Hulu for a new fan podcast based on the hit Hulu Original, Only Murders in the Building, which stars Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Hosted by true crime enthusiasts, Elizabeth Keener and Kevin Lawn, each episode of the podcast invites a new member of the cast or crew to share stories about the production process and offer a clue to help our sleuths solve the mystery.
Past guests have included showrunner and co-creator, John Hoffman, actor Julian Cihi, who plays the ill-fated Tim Kono, actress Amy Ryan, who plays the bassoon-playing love interest Jan, actor Michael Cyril Creighton, who plays the bereaved cat-lover Howard Morris, and numerous writers and directors.
True to expectations, secrets are being revealed each week. Before any official news from the network, show writer Kirker Butler shared that the team is back in the writer’s room during his interview in Episode 2, Who is Tim Kono. He said, “What we’re doing right now is we’re working on season 2. So it’s all about breaking the overall arc of the season; what our mystery’s going to be, who our suspect’s going to be.”
With Hulu releasing new episodes on Tuesday evenings, Only Murders in the Pod releases companion episodes at midnight PST on Wednesdays. Since its official launch on September 1st, listenership has been growing rapidly. The show currently has a perfect five-star rating on Apple Podcasts.
“Love both shows! It’s fun listening to this right after watching it on TV!” wrote one enthusiastic listener.
As the mystery slowly unravels on Only Murders in the Building, podcast guests are offering more and more intriguing clues. Episode 5, which drops at midnight on Wednesday, September 15th, features show writer and producer Thembi Banks, who provided a cryptic and enticing clue. She said, “Even our characters that we’re following… it’ll be a journey for them to discover and come to terms with who the killer is.”
With Only Murders in the Building moving dramatically toward the conclusion hinted at in its opening scene, listeners can tune into Only Murders in the Pod all the way until the season finale. Future podcast episodes are sure to promise more exciting drop-ins from cast, crew, and even the stars, to add their experiences and offer even more clues.
