S2 Ep2: Case 010: The Wild(er) Case of Ricky’s Follower

Ricky & Tony: Pop Detectives

Jun 16 2020 • 47 mins

Something’s been puzzling Ricky for a few years and he wants the help of Tony and their experts to get to the bottom of it.

On the day that actor Gene Wilder died in 2016, Ricky was moved to post a tribute on Twitter, only to find out that Gene was following him! However, what’s even more strange is that the account only follows 13 people, Ricky being one of them, along with a few Hollywood stars. Why and how did this happen?

To get to the bottom of this one Ricky and Tony want to go beyond the grave, luckily they’ve got the contact details of Patrick Keller, host of ‘The Big Seance’ Podcast who knows all about contacting dead celebrities and even tries to make contact with Gene for them.

And to get some cold hard facts on whether Ricky’s famous follower might have been the victim of hackers (if so, why only follow Ricky?), the pair chat to their social media security expert Drew Benvie.

Can they find the golden ticket that will give them the answers? It turns out things aren’t quite as easily explained as you might think!
