See

The basic premise is quickly summed up with some text at the beginning of the first episode, which states that sometime in the 21st century, there was a deadly virus that wiped out most people on earth, leaving only a mere two million people left. Unfortunately, those who survived were blinded, and now centuries later, the sense of sight is considered a myth. It's heresy to even speak about sight, and if you are even thought of to have the gift of sight, you are supposed to burn.

The story follows a bunch of different people, but you start off by mostly following Baba Voss (Jason Momoa), the leader of the Alkenny tribe, and his pregnant wife, Maghra (Hera Hilmar). At the very beginning of the first episode, Paris (Alfre Woodward) is tending to Maghra as she's in labor, while Voss is defending their home from invading attackers. The story unfolds from here.

Seasons one and two of See are on Apple TV+ right now, and a third season has been confirmed.

Servant

From there the series takes plenty of twists and turns through seasons one, two, and a currently-airing third season.

Unlike many other Apple Original Podcasts, Hooked does not tie into an accompanying Apple TV+ show. The nine-part podcast series explores the true story of Tony Hathaway, whose addiction to legally prescribed opioids led him to spiral from a top engineer to becoming one of the most prolific bank robbers in American history. Available in Apple Podcasts or via RSS for free, you do not need an Apple TV+ subscription to listen to Hooked.

The Line

The Line is Apple's first hybrid podcast-TV offering presented as two non-fiction series. The series examine the moral ambiguities of war as embodied by the 2018 case in which a US Navy SEAL platoon accused its chief, Eddie Gallagher, of war crimes.

The six-part audio series hosted and executive produced by Dan Taberski is available now on Apple Podcasts with the four-part docuseries available on Apple TV+.

The Problem with Jon Stewart

The Problem with Jon Stewart is a companion podcast series to the TV+ series of the same name. The idea of the weekly show is to extend the conversation of each TV episode. Jon is joined by the staff and expert guests for nuanced discussions, updates on action items, and "airing of grievances from writers over jokes that didn't make the show."

Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy

Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy, an eight-part podcast series, shares the behind-the-scenes story of the world's most famous magical duo.

Over the course of nearly half a century, Siegfried & Roy performed 30,000 shows for millions of people. Although the German-born illusionists and pop culture icons were mega-famous, much about their private lives, eccentric public personae and tragic final show remained shrouded in mystery … until now. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and investigative journalist Steven Leckart goes behind the velvet curtain to reveal shocking moments, surprising details and hidden truths about two men who were lionized by millions of fans, lampooned by the media, criticized by animal welfare advocates, and endlessly scrutinized by the public.

Apple continues to grow its number of TV+-adjacent podcast offerings, though Wild Things does not offer a TV counterpart as is the case for The Line and The Problem With Jon Stewart, nor is it a companion podcast like those that launched with its Foundation and For All Mankind TV+ series.
