First up, are there any Stephen King fans in the house? iHeartMedia and Audio Up Media is proud to announce the king of horror’s first foray into the podcasting world with “Strawberry Spring,” a new scripted, narrative podcast based on the popular short story from King’s classic 1978 collection Night Shift. The chilling new audio story features a powerhouse Hollywood cast, including This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia and Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney, alongside Garrett Hedlund, Herizen F. Guardiola, Ken Marino and Al Madrigal. Set against the backdrop of the sixties revolution on the fictional New England campus of New Sharon College, “Strawberry Spring” follows a journalist (Ventimiglia) who hears the name “Springheel Jack” on the radio, which rekindles memories from his time back in college when a serial killer was claiming victims during a strawberry spring. Inspired to find Springheel Jack once and for all, the journalist begins unraveling the dark and mysterious truth behind the killer’s origins.
