Jam Street Media launches podcast network with slate of programming
PRESS RELEASE —
Jam Street Media, an LA-based podcast production and consulting firm focused on branded content and top talent, is announcing the launch of its podcast network with a portfolio of shows.
The company — founded by Matty Staudt, former vice president of podcast programming at iHeartRadio and director of content at Stitcher — aims to help take proven talent who have great ideas for shows and make them a reality, as well as find great independent shows currently being produced that can benefit from their years of experience producing and promoting podcasts.
“I have spent a career working with talent to create important and long-lasting shows. I want to make shows that break the mold, appeal to a diversity of audiences, and leave people feeling good about themselves. We are an industry that creates companionship and comfort, which is what our network will provide,” said Staudt. “I’m also looking forward to finding great independent producers who can use our knowledge of production and business to gain the audiences they deserve.”
Jam Street Media’s newly-launched podcast network features three shows:
- Big Swing Podcast, a podcast hosted by Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling and longtime sports fan Cooper Surles with pro athlete guests, talking about sports, pop culture, business, and everything in between. It’s where athletes go to talk about sports.
- Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee, a talk show hosted by the International pop star and personality, featuring inspirational guests, personal stories, and poetry.
- Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco, features the true stories as told by the real Donnie Brasco, Joe Pistone, about his time with the mob. Sometimes the real story is better than the movie.
The company plans to expand its network in the coming months, with the acquisition of a number of new podcasts and IP.
Added Staudt: “I am so lucky to have found our new Executive Producer, Amanda Rosenberg who will be working on several projects that celebrate women including “Wake Up,” the true story of a woman who lost her memories to amnesia and was shocked about what she learned when they started coming back. We are also working with several documentarians and reporters to bring their stories to podcasting.”
Jam Street Media has partnered with podcast giant Acast for the hosting, distribution, and monetization of its programming.
“Acast is thrilled to be working with Jam Street Media. Matty is a veteran in the world of podcasting — an OG audio guy — who has the unique ability to spot projects that have potential and make them shine,” said Rebecca Steinberg, content development manager at Acast. “The industry benefits from players like Jam Street Media, who invest the time and energy into creating quality content with a diverse pool of talent.”
Acast invented true dynamic ad insertion technology in podcasting — which allows for the delivery of timely, contextualized podcast ads specific to listeners across any device or platform — and is pioneering an automated podcast ad buying solution. Acast recently launched Acast Marketplace, the hub for podcast ad buying globally, and it enables advertisers to run campaigns across markets and to target specific audiences.
“I have been a fan of Acast and Ross Adams, their CEO, for a long time. Their technology and experience made them a no brainer for our ad sales”
Coming up this summer Jam Street will debut Appalachian Mysteria, a podcast about some of the most mysterious murders and mysteries of Appalachia, featuring the “WVU Co-Ed Murders” in Season One.
