Join the Weekly Journey to Find Lost Gold with MMA Fighter and The HISTORY® Channel’s Treasure Hunter, Kru Williams

For Immediate Release

TORONTO, May 31, 2023 – Podcast listeners, get ready to strike gold with new show Deadman’s Curse: Slumach’s Gold – a follow-up to The HISTORY® Channel original hit television series, Deadman’s Curse, produced by Great Pacific Media (GPM), Curiouscast and Corus Entertainment – coming to headphones and speakers on Tuesday, June 6.

The historical true crime podcast investigates the curse and legend surrounding the lost gold mine of Pitt Lake in British Columbia. Hosted by The HISTORY® Channel’s Kru Williams, and featuring members of the the Stó:lō and Katzie First Nations, historians, and cultural experts, listeners will be taken on a journey through Slumach’s past – an Indigenous prospector and accused murderer, who set a curse on his hidden gold.

Join the team of truth-seekers a century later, as they walk the same paths of those who went looking for Slumach’s cursed gold and never returned.

“We are so excited for our listeners to experience Dead Man’s Curse: Slumach’s Gold,” said Corus’ Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Chris Duncombe. “Host Kru Williams does such an exceptional job taking us inside this 150-year-old legend like never before.  From miscarried justice to cursed gold this podcast is a true adventure from beginning to end.”

Join Kru and team every week as they sort fact from fiction, providing Slumach a voice from the other side of the veil.

“We could not be happier with the reaction we’ve had to Deadman’s Curse on The History Channel,” said GPM President David Way. “The podcast brings another dimension to the exploration of this incredible legend that began on screen, and Kru delivers an exciting and engaging listening experience week after week.”
