Cavalry Audio’s new true-crime podcast The Rosenberg Case: A Tale of Murder, Corruption, and Conspiracy in Guatemala premieres today, and Star Wars and Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac lends his voice to this 10-episode story.
“Join writer and narrator, Edgar Castillo, a first generation Guatemalan American, as he explores the byzantine true story of the bizarre assassination of Rodrigo Rosenberg — an influential Guatemalan lawyer who was gunned down while on his Sunday morning bike ride in May of 2009. At his funeral, he posthumously released a YouTube video that declared, ‘If you’re seeing this video, it means that I’ve been murdered by President Alvaro Colom,’ Guatemala’s sitting President. The Rosenberg video unleashed a major political upheaval and one of the most unpredictable murder investigations in history, but that was only the beginning. You won’t believe the conspiracy Edgar uncovers from interviews of those close to the case — including the person who hired the hitmen …”
While Castillo narrates, Isaac provides the voice for Rosenberg.
The Rosenberg Case is produced by Jason Seagraves and executive produced by Isaac, Castillo, Dana Brunetti, and Keegan Rosenberger.
The first two episodes are now available. Audiences can listen to episodes a week early (and ad-free) by subscribing to Cavalry+ on the Apple Podcasts app.
Today coincidentally marks the premiere of two podcasts starring Isaac, with the other being Gimlet’s Case 63 — a gripping audio drama in which he stars alongside Julianne Moore.
