We’ve made a simple change that’s going to have a big impact on how listeners find you: we’ve updated our categories. Why is this so important? The latest version of Spreaker’s categories are now the same as Apple Podcasts’ categories – making for quicker, better, categorization for you!
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 podcast launched in April 2018 as a result of the hosts being shocked by the public’s reaction to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
We’re so thrilled to announce the initial success of Spreaker Prime, our new white-glove service for talented independent podcasters and networks. In the first three months of the revenue-sharing program, our Spreaker Prime podcasters generated $1 million dollars via programmatic advertising, with sixty-percent of the profits going directly to the podcasters!
Bolt your doors, lock your windows and get ready to settle in for some of the scariest, eeriest and most terrifying podcasts around. There’s no better way to get into the Halloween spirit (pardon the pun) than to listen to a horror story, so we’ve picked a range of podcasts, from audio dramas to real-life accounts of paranormal activity, to send some shivers down your spine.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve added another distribution outlet to our one-click / tap distribution function: Podcast Addict.
Podcast Addict is the most popular and downloaded podcast listening app on the Google Play Store, according to the platform they have had over 9 million downloads and are home to 750 thousand podcasts. The platform’s importance is sure to make it a fundamental distribution point for all podcasters as Android’s share of the market continues to grow.
January 9, 2020 Blog Post Update: We’re thrilled to announce that our statistics are now officially certified by IAB Technology Lab (IAB), which can be found here: http://j.mp/compliant-companies. Wondering what this means as a podcaster on Spreaker? Read the full details below.
We previously shared that IAB Technology Lab (IAB) – a nonprofit consortium that develops standards within the digital media world – released podcast measurement guidelines to help streamline policies for providers like us and podcasters like you. To ensure our software and products meet industry guidelines, Spreaker is working to be IAB certified!
October 8 Update: This year’s #WerkItFestival was truly a memorable one! Didn’t get a chance to be there or listen live? You can listen to them here:
ICYMI, earlier this month we announced our title sponsorship for Werk It, a women’s podcast festival, in Los Angeles on October 3-4! One of the things we’re most excited about bringing to the partnership is our live broadcast of the entire event utilizing our Spreaker Studio app’s live broadcasting tool.
That means, no matter where you are, you’ll be able to tune in and hear all the incredible sessions during both days of the festival (for free)!
How? It’s simple. Just visit WerkItFestival.com during the scheduled session times on October 3 and 4 and you’ll see two Spreaker Web Players – Main Stage and Second Stage sessions – where you can press play and enjoy.
