Last, but certainly not least, this next podcast is perfect for fans of mysteries and… Britney Spears? Let us explain. “Unread” is a brand new iHeartRadio podcast about looking for answers in the digital breadcrumbs people leave behind. One December evening in 2019, Chris Stedman noticed a new message in his inbox from his friend Alex: “i am writing to let you know that when you receive this scheduled email, i will no longer be alive.” In the message, Alex included a strange link to a private SoundCloud account with recordings of the mysterious Alice: an anonymous person who sounds just like Alex’s icon, Britney Spears. Alice had become legend in Britney fan circles, but who was she really? Why did Alex include these recordings of her? And most importantly, could she help Chris understand why his friend was gone? In “Unread,” Chris decides to track down the elusive Alice, in the hopes that she has the answers. Follow Chris down the rabbit hole, and listen to “Unread” on iHeartradio. All four episodes of this special series become available on June 10.
