"The Empty Grave of Comrade Bishop" is an investigative podcast from The Washington Post. The series follows reporter Martine Powers as she raises new questions about a 40-year-old mystery on the Caribbean island of Grenada. Its revolutionary leader, Maurice Bishop, was executed in a coup in 1983 along with seven of his friends and cabinet members. The whereabouts of their remains is unknown.

I art directed and designed the show's key art and overall visual identity. While working on this project, I spent months attending meetings with The Post's audio team and looking through hundreds of archival documents and photos they collected. I also helped put together the podcast's episode guide.
