Just before he was hanged, an indigenous prospector accused of murder set a curse on anyone who searched for his hidden gold. Over a century later, a prospector, a mountaineer, a truth-seeker and a way-shower band together to walk the same paths of those who went looking for Slumach’s cursed gold and never returned.

Deadman’s Curse: Slumach’s Gold is a historical, true crime podcast hosted by Kru Williams from History Television and Great Pacific Media’s hit original series Deadman’s Curse: The Legend of the Lost Gold. Join Kru and the team as they investigate the curse and legend surrounding the lost gold mine of Pitt Lake.

On their quest they’re joined by members of the Stó:lō and Katzie First Nations, historians and cultural experts of diverse backgrounds, as they sort fact from fiction and give Slumach a voice from the other side of the veil.

Deadman’s Curse: Slumach’s Gold was the recipient of three Signal Awards including a Gold for history podcast, a Silver for writing for an unscripted podcast, and Listener’s Choice for writing for an unscripted podcast. It was also named to Amazon Music’s “Best of 2023” list for Canadian podcasts.
