From Fukishima, Zika Virus, the Chilean Mining Accident and more; New Podcast Investigates What’s Happened Since Major Stories Disappeared From the News Cycle
TORONTO, NOVEMBER 19, 2020 – Corus Entertainment’s award-winning podcast network Curiouscast, announced today the launch of brand new investigative podcast Whatever Happened To…?.

Speaking directly to the people affected by these stories, Whatever Happened To…? finds out what’s changed and what’s happening now.
