Quiet Part Loud: Jordan Peele, Spotify Release Horror Podcast Trailer
From Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions, Quiet Part Loud is a Spotify audio horror fable that explores the terrifying power of a violent, virulent and unrelenting lie. It's a haunting parable of monsters, both human and otherworldly, and a fictional but unflinching examination of the current animosity, fear, and divisiveness in America.
Conservative radio personality Rick Egan (Tracy Letts) lost his platform in the wake of 9/11 for spreading xenophobic rumors surrounding a group of missing Muslim teenagers. Eight years later, a washed-up Rick is slumming it on the convention circuit when a mysterious woman (Christina Hendricks) presents a tantalizing revelation: One of the missing teens is back. This sends Rick on a quest for vindication as he follows a trail of unfathomable events. He is left face to face with the true culprit…The Blank (Taran Killam), a faceless sound parasite that thrives on the air of hatred. Rick receives a Faustian bargain from the mysterious entity and is about to find out exactly how far he will go to claw his way back to the top.
With the use of immersive audio and sound design, Quiet Part Loud stands out from other horror narrative podcasts. The show consists of 12 bite-sized episodes that will be available for listeners to binge all at once. The Spotify original is written by Mac Rogers and Clay McLeod Chapman, directed by Mimi O'Donnell, produced by Geoff Foster, Amy McLeish, and Katie Pastore, and executive produced by Peele, O'Donnell & Win Rosenfeld. Peele has also been a special guest for another Spotify original just recently in Brain Structure from Hideo Kojima as they discussed the film Nope and the process of a creator in the entertainment field. All 12 episodes of Quiet Part Loud will be available on Tuesday, November 15th. Let us know in the comments below if you'll be listening when episodes arrive next week!
