It’s been more than 18 years since an onstage tiger attack ended Siegfried & Roy’s long-running magic show at the Mirage.

The details are murky. And rumors and conspiracy theories still run rampant. People remain fascinated about what happened that night -- and about the personal lives of the two German-born entertainers. 

One of those people is Steven Leckart, a journalist and filmmaker. He wanted to take a closer look at that attack of October 3, 2003. And delve deeper into their personal lives. 

The result is a podcast called Wild Things, which released its fourth episode last Wednesday. It’s on Apple TV+ and other streaming services.
