PodcastOne announced the launch of their latest true-crime podcast Final Days on Earth. Hosted by CBS News journalist Claire St. Amant, it’s about a cold-case investigation of a college wrestler who went missing after a party and the questions this raised.
This is the planned first season of the podcast and is focusing on the disappearance of the wrestler Dammion Heard after a party with his wrestling teammates of Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado in March of 2014. They say each season will examine mysterious deaths that have elements of an accident, murder, or suicide – and sometimes all three.
The first season will be 12-parts and will utilize 47 different police interviews with witnesses from the party and Dammion’s friends in 2014, as well as over 30 original interviews St. Amant conducted from 2019 to 2021.
“PodcastOne is excited to add Final Days on Earth, and the compelling story of Dammion Heard told in season one, to our growing slate of true crime podcasts. Claire’s background in investigative journalism and her ability to uncover new and key elements in this case was extraordinary, and I cannot wait for audiences to be able to hear this podcast,” said Kit Gray, President of PodcastOne.
“As I dug into Dammion’s case, I couldn’t believe how many twists and turns it took,” St. Amant said. “Thanks to the new witnesses and information I’ve found, I believe Dammion’s friends and family are closer than ever to the answers they have been looking for since his untimely death over seven years ago.”
Final Days on Earth is the first podcast developed by Cold Case Productions.
