Peter Weber and Dustin Kendrick’s Bachelors in the City podcast adopts Acast+
PRESS RELEASE · Los Angeles CA, USA ·
Bachelor Nation fans can now sign up to Acast+ to hear alums Peter Weber and Dustin Kendrick review the latest The Bachelor franchise seasons as the shows air and share their reactions and viewpoints as former participants.
Paying subscribers will receive exclusive access to their perspectives on the latest series through weekly bonus episodes of Peter and Dustin’s Acast podcast, Bachelors in the City, which is currently accessible on nearly every podcast app and player. The bonus podcast episodes will be available shortly after the latest The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise TV episodes air.
“We wanted to give fans our perspective as insiders about what’s going on in the show and what’s going through the contestants’ heads,” said Peter. “Our Acast+ membership lets us give podcast listeners that direct access in a really simple way, right as new episodes of the TV series air.”
Acast+, a podcast subscription service from the podcast company Acast, allows listeners to financially support their favorite podcasts and get exclusive access to special perks, such as bonus episodes, an ad-free listening experience, early access to episodes, and more. Once a listener signs up on Acast+, they can access the bonus episodes and other perks on their podcast app of choice, such as Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Overcast, Pocket Casts, and nearly all other players.
The Bachelors in the City podcast, which launched in April and is produced by Redd Rock Music, also publishes free episodes each Wednesday about Peter and Dustin’s day-to-day life in New York City, featuring interviews with notable guests including New York chefs, athletes, entertainers, and Peter’s and Dustin’s friends. The podcast is hosted and distributed by Acast.
Listeners can get access to the bonus episodes with the $5-per-month (plus tax) tier on Acast+, which will also give them ad-free access to the entire Bachelors in the City podcast. Listeners who would simply like to listen to the podcast’s free content without ads can choose an alternative, $3-per-month (plus tax) tier. Three bonus episodes are available for listeners so far — corresponding to the three episodes of the current season of The Bachelorette.
“Bachelor Nation fans are always curious about insider viewpoints of the show, and listening to former contestants’ podcasts is the perfect way to get that kind of information,” said Sara Sopher, associate partner manager at Acast. “Peter and Dustin identified that need and wanted to provide exclusive content to their fans. With Acast+, we’re giving creative podcasters like them new ways to take their shows further by activating on what their listeners want and directly offering them special benefits.”
Acast+ is part of Acast’s creator-first mission of giving listeners even more ways to connect with their favorite podcasters — and giving podcasters of all sizes the creative freedom to engage with their listeners, offer fans exclusive benefits, and earn money for their work.
