Ronan Farrow’s explosive new book, "Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators," will soon be turned into a podcast.

RADIO.COM’s Pineapple Street Studios will partner with Farrow for the new original podcast that will be featured on the RADIO.COM app.

The podcast -- which is titled, "To Catch and Kill Podcast With Ronan Farrow" -- will premiere in November. The Pineapple Street production will serve as an audio companion to Farrow's book, recounting investigations and interviews he conducted surrounding allegations of sexual misconduct against media figures like Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein.

"'Catch and Kill' is full of incredibly compelling men and women and this podcast will give you the opportunity to hear their voices directly, in intimate, candid conversations with me,” Farrow said. “We’ll provide a deeper understanding of the plot that unravels in the book and feature brand new details and pieces of evidence directly from the investigation,” he continued.

The podcast will also provide more context about the powerful systems that cover up sexual misconduct, detailed by Farrow in his new book.

An early episode, which aired on The New Yorker Radio Hour, featured an interview with Igor Ostrovskiy, who was hired to spy on Farrow, but ended up becoming an ally and source.

“We couldn't be more excited to partner with Ronan on this truly important project,” said Max Linsky, co-head of Pineapple Street Studios.

“This is the exact kind of show we want to be making and the type of podcast that can bring new audiences to the medium,” he added.

"The Catch and Kill Podcast With Ronan Farrow" is scheduled to launch in November. Further details will be announced.
