THE RED NOTE PODCAST
About The Red Note Podcast
The Red Note podcast is a 10 episode podcast series hosted by Lydia Cacho about the stories behind the femicides in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The podcast is the first fully bilingual podcast, with complete episodes in both English and Spanish (under the title "La Nota Roja").
Both The Red Note and La Nota Roja were written and directed by Craig Whitney, with executive producers Jason Hoch and Lydia Cacho, lead producer Estefania Bonilla Hernandez and producers Will Wallace, Laura Caufield, and Craig Whitney. The first episode of the podcast was released in September 2020 by Imperative Entertainment, with new episodes running through November.
Flowers of the Desert: Stories from The Red Note
The producers of The Red Note / La Nota Roja podcasts have also teamed up to create a feature length documentary about the femicide in Juarez entitled "Flowers of the Desert: Stories from The Red Note". The documentary will feature interviews with some of the same individuals who were interviewed for The Red Note podcast, along with an examination of the social and political realities that caused the serial murder of women in Juarez.
Flowers of the Desert: Stories from The Red Note will be directed by the producer of The Red Note podcast, Estefania Bonilla Hernandez, and is scheduled to be released in 2021.
