Peter and Rick will also talk about their 2020 plans, their meteoric rise on the live music scene, and more.

About Osiris: Today people are bombarded with content, but many people are not finding authentic connections with the topics they care about. And many companies are having a harder time forming relationships with targeted consumers. As ESPN provided passionate sports fans with a way to connect more deeply with their interests, Osiris is looking to do the same with music and culture. With audio podcasts, video, and live events, we are creating commentary and experiences for music fans to delight and inform-while helping companies connect with a difficult to reach demographic in an authentic way.

Martinis and Murder


Martinis & Murder is Oxygen's weekly true-crime podcast hosted by John Thrasher and Daryn Carp. From serial killers to mysterious disappearances to infamous murder cases, John and Daryn break down one murder per episode, making the heavy subject matter a little more palatable by not checking their senses of humor at the door. Freshly shaken martinis by Matt the Bartender also help. John and Daryn not only tell the narrative of each murder but also delve into compelling and little- known facts about the lives of each victim and killer. What was the motivation? Was the killer a psychopath or a sane person who simply snapped? What was the impact on the victim's family, friends, and community? Co-hosts John and Daryn have interviewed a who's who of true crime, including Dateline's Keith Morrison, "Dirty John's" Debra Newell, Golden State Killer Detective Paul Holes, television personality Nancy Grace, NBC News correspondent Kate Snow, "Cold Justice's" Kelly Siegler, crime journalist Billy Jensen, Mary Jo Buttafuoco, and more. Covered by The New York Times, Digiday, among others, "Martinis and Murder" was also recently listed as a "must listen" by Cosmopolitan.
