Podcast and audio network Audioboom has added two shows to its Audioboom Originals array. The home-grown network swells to 22 podcasts with these additions, many of them personality-driven shows in chat and interview formats. “Audioboom is a leader in recognizing and investing in talent,” said Brendan Regan, Executive Vice President, Content and Production. “Collaborating and building creative podcasts with engaging talent is our key focus for the growth of Audioboom Originals.”
(Listeners who spent Covid downtime watching The Great British Baking Show on Netflix might want to try An Hour Or So With…, featuring “Bakeoff” host Sue Perkins.)
Here are the two newcomers as described by Audioboom:
Dark History is hosted by YouTube sensation Bailey Sarian, and became an immediate global hit, reaching number 1 on Apple’s podcast chart in the US, UK, Canada and Australia, and number 1 on Spotify’s chart in the US, UK, and Australia following its launch on June 2nd.
