Gladiator, a new podcast produced by tastemakers Wondery and the highly acclaimed Boston Globe Spotlight Team, launches today. The investigative six-part series will chronicle the saga of Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots player convicted of murder, who later committed suicide in his prison cell. The Spotlight Team will present Hernandez’s story to listeners in a broader context, including the factors that led a man to throw away a $40 million contract by committing murder. To coincide with the launch of the podcast, the Spotlight Team is publishing a six-part investigative series both digitally and in print.
