The Siegfried & Roy podcast, which will premier later in 2021, will "present an -depth look at the most famous, controversial magicians in history, who were widely misunderstood, frequently satirized and feverishly criticized," Deadline reported Tuesday.

The podcast will be produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Leckhart, known for his work on Netflix's "Challenger: The Final Flight." Will Malnati of At Will Media, which makes the "For All Mankind" podcast, will also serve as executive producer.

Earlier in April, Apple announced a new premium subscription podcast service that will bring exclusive shows to the company's platform. The move comes amid increasing competition from rivals like Spotify, which has outpaced Apple in exclusive podcast content.

Apple also recently debuted "The Line," one of its first original podcasts connected to an Apple TV+ documentary.

     OK Boomer Cue.

    fun fact: in the late eighties early nineties I had my hair streaked just like Roy’s (I wasn’t copying him, but still). It was quite reserved after my earlier Flock of Seagulls imitation effort.
    Sadly, I don’t have enough hair left to do anything of the kind these days.
