Hosted by journalist Eric Benson, the podcast explores the story of serial bomber Ted Kaczynski and what drove him to his dystopian vision
“Project Unabom” will premiere June 27, 2022 on Apple Podcasts.
Apple TV+ today announced the new Apple Original podcast “Project Unabom,” debuting the trailer for the eight-part series premiering on Monday, June 27.
When the Unabomber was arrested in 1996, the world got a glimpse of the serial bomber who had terrorized the nation for 18 years and murdered three people. Bearded and disheveled, Ted Kaczynski was the perfect depiction of a madman. Featuring new original reporting from host Eric Benson (“Suspect,” “Witnessed: Borderlands”) — including access to thousands of original documents from Kaczynski’s personal papers and FBI files, exclusive interviews with his brother David Kaczynski, and the never-before-told story of the original suspects in the UNABOM case — “Project Unabom” tells the story of a nation and a family coming to grips with what was happening inside a tiny cabin in the Montana woods.
New episodes of “Project Unabom” will debut weekly on Mondays on Apple Podcasts and via RSS at apple.co/Project-Unabom. Produced by Audacy’s Pineapple Street Studios, the podcast is executive produced by Pineapple Street co-founders Jenna Weiss-Berman and Max Linsky. The senior producer for Pineapple Street is Jonathan Menjivar (“The Clearing”).
“Project Unabom” joins a growing offering of Apple Original podcasts now streaming on Apple Podcasts, including “Run, Bambi, Run,” the DuPont-Columbia Award-winning “The Line,” “Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy,” “Hooked” and “The Problem With Jon Stewart,” as well as official companion podcasts for Apple TV+ series “The Big Conn,” “Foundation” and “For All Mankind.”
