We are so thrilled to introduce BLOOM, our brand new podcast content development program. The first independent podcast partner selected to launch the program with is Flatrock: A Cold Case Podcast.
It’s no secret that the talent pool in the podcast industry in growing rapidly, which is why BLOOM was developed. We want to assist creative, independent podcasters who could really use the support of a larger team like Spreaker. The podcasts we select to partner with in the program receive support on content curation, technology, and the promotion that smaller podcasters need to flourish.
Unfortunately, just because you have a good story to share doesn’t mean you have the tools to make sure it can be heard. Our goal is to find talented podcasters who have an interesting idea or message that they’re passionate about telling, but are struggling to take it to the next level. Whether their script and concept needs improvement or they don’t have a professional audio skillset, our team helps them fill the gaps so there’s nothing standing in the way of success.
BLOOM has five podcast launches planned for the year, starting with Flatrock, a podcast that’s investigating the case of Nashville’s Kathy Jones who was murdered in 1969 on a walk to the roller skating rink. The podcast’s Kickstarter fundraising campaign caught our attention and we’ve been working towards the podcast’s release. The first episode is officially live (don’t forget to subscribe and leave a review)!
Olivia Lind, Flatrock’s host and producer was kind enough to share a quick note on our partnership:
“Working with Spreaker on this project has been so helpful. During my investigation of Kathy Jones’ cold case, I learned about a very strong murder suspect who was never mentioned to the public. This story needs to be told, and I’m not sure I could have accomplished it without Spreaker’s help.”
More information on the additional four podcasts that have already partnered with BLOOM will be released soon, and there will even be an open call for podcasters to apply for the BLOOM program later this year!
