‘The Lost Olympians’ Podcast Now on Audible

Jessica Biel, one of Hollywood’s must successful and sought after actresses, has now moved into podcast production.

Iron Ocean Productions, the production company Biel runs with Michelle Purple, has teamed up with ATTN: to produce a three-part series about legendary swimmer Lesley Cairns for Audible.

The Amazon-owned audio platform has ordered the series, which also marks the first podcast produced by digital media firm ATTN:, which was founded by Matthew Segal and Jarrett Moreno in 2014.

The Lost Olympians tells the story of Cairns, one of the best swimmers in the world, whose chance to compete on the world stage was stolen by the political forces of Apartheid in 1970’s South Africa. Interwoven throughout Lesley’s story is the history of the construction of Apartheid and how the effects of the devastating policies still ripple through society today.

The series is narrated by Patrick Cairns and executive produced by Biel and Purple for Iron Ocean, Segal and Moreno for ATTN: and Matt Fabbri and Patrick Cairns for 1310 Productions.

“We are excited to continue creating female driven content and to launch Iron Ocean into the podcast world with this incredible story,” said Jessica Biel.

“We are so proud to be working with ATTN: and Audible to bring Lesley’s story to life and to share it with listeners around the world,” added Michelle Purple.
