Jottings of note:


10-million Redemptions

Audio Up, the podcast network producer of the Mea Culpa podcast, hosted by Donald Trump advisor-turned-antagonist Michael Cohen, is celebrating a milestone — 10-million downloads across the show’s span. We see 102 episodes posted, so the podcast (which is part of Cohen’s “redemption tour”) has averaged about 100,000 downloads per episode. Guests have included Ben Stiller and Stormy Daniels.



The Crooked Media podcast network is making some noise about its new show. It is called X-Ray Vision, and will drop on August 30. It’s led by veteran podcast host Jason Concepcion, formerly of the Bing Mode Marvel and Harry Potter podcasts. The new one is a fantasy and fandom show. First episode: A primer on the Marvel universe. We need that.


Executive Hire

TuneCore has announced a new operational head of the company’s UK division. It is Sarah Wilson, who comes over from Universal Music UK. She will also be in charge of Tunecore operations in Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia.
