Rejoice true-crime fans, iHeartRadio is launching a new investigative podcast series––“White Eagle!” From the mind behind hit series “Paper Ghosts” and “Crossing the Line” comes a new story that will have you asking yourself: What exactly happened? Join host, investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author M. William Phelps as he uncovers the events around one balmy Monday evening in late September 1983 in West Hartford, Connecticut when Victor Gerena––a 25-year-old college dropout and Wells Fargo armored car guard––set in motion the largest cash heist in history. Three decades later, 30 people believed to be involved in the heist were either arrested, killed, assassinated and/or jailed––everyone except for Victor, that is. In this six-part series, Phelps will answer the pressing questions around what happened, including: Was Victor a criminal mastermind who single-handedly pulled off the heist? Or was he a political pawn in a Cold War operation? The debut episode of “White Eagle” is out April 7th on iHeartRadio, so be sure to tune in and don’t miss a single detail!
Last, but certainly not least, is the infamous story of how ambitious LA girl Heidi Fleiss rose to become Hollywood’s most notorious madam in the early 1990s. From iHeartRadio, “HeidiWorld: The Heidi Fleiss Story” will uncover how Heidi fell at the hands of American sexual hypocrisy and give listeners a deep and kaleidoscopic dive into the world of sex, drugs, glamour and corruption in 1990s Los Angeles. Join Los Angeles-based host, writer and podcaster Molly Lambert (former co-host of iHeart’s pop culture podcast “Night Call”) as she digs into the full story of the rise and fall of Heidi, covering topics such as the corruption, hypocrisy, sex work and media spectacle that ensued around this fascinating former Hollywood madam––ultimately using this story as a lens into the current culture and state of our world today. Episode one will introduce you to Heidi and the rest of the Fleiss family, diving into the bohemian California lifestyle of the 1970s, so make sure to give it a listen beginning April 11th on iHeartRadio!
