Spreaker Announces New Bloom Program Podcast

We’re thrilled to announce that Popcorn Psychology has officially joined Bloom, our podcast content development program. We launched the program back in August as a way to assist talented independent podcasters who could benefit from the production support of a larger team (like Spreaker!). 

Popcorn Psychology is a podcast hosted by three licensed therapists – Ben Stover, M.A., L.C.P.C., Hannah Espinoza, M.A., L.C.P.C., and Brittney Brownfield, M.S., L.C.P.C. – who spend each episode breaking down and analyzing popular movies and characters from the perspectives of a child, individual, and marriage and family therapist. With the goal of decreasing the stigma of mental health and therapy, the show launched in April 2018 as a result of the hosts being shocked by the public’s reaction to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
