Independent Podcast Company Jam Street Media Reaches 1 Million Downloads Just Six Months After Launch


Since the launch of its podcast network on June 15th, 2020, Jam Street Media has achieved its first milestone of 1 million downloads. Its diverse slate of shows includes: The Big Swing with Strip and Coop, Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco, Appalachian Mysteria and Let’s Get Into Entertainment. Having touched on a number of genres from sports, to true-crime, to entertainment, Jam Street Media has been able to build and maintain a loyal fan base for each of its shows.

“The amazing part of this milestone is that we’ve done this pre-funding and with no paid promotion,” said Matty Staudt, President of Jam Street Media. “The number speaks to the hard work from our talent, production team and social media director.”

From journalists to athletes to entertainers, the roster of talent includes people from all walks of life. Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco is proudly hosted by actor Leo Rossi and Joe Pistone (a.k.a Donnie Brasco.) Pistone is not only a decorated former FBI agent but is also one of the oldest podcasters in the business at the age of 80.

In a short time, Jam Street Media has been able to take established shows and push them up the charts. Appalachian Mysteria, a true-crime podcast that focuses on mysterious murders in the Appalachian region of the country, currently sits at 33 on Apple Podcast for US Documentaries. The Big Swing Podcast, hosted by MLB All-Star pitcher Ross Stripling and Cooper Surles, sits at 22 on the Apple Podcast charts for Baseball All-Time.

“A big-time congratulations to Jam Street Media,” said Stripling. “I’m really excited to be a part of a growing network and look forward to seeing the awesome shows they’ll bring their listeners in the future.”

Surles echoed the sentiment of Stripiling saying, “Jam Street is a company full of collaboration, and is a great place for creators to share their voices.”

In 2021, Jam Street Media plans to release season two of Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco and season three of Appalachian Mysteria.
