Lipp Media, a new podcast network, launches in Australia

PRESS RELEASE — August 3, 2018

Melbourne VIC, Australia—Lipp Media, a new podcast network, launches in Australia. Lipp Media is a collaborative partnership for on-demand, digital audio by women and members of the LGBT+ community. Lipp Media facilitates commercial brand integration to ensure the development of popular, well-produced and profitable podcasts.

Lipp Media has launched with three original shows, The Gays Are Revolting, a dedicated weekly news source for contemporary gays, Cher and Retweet, a comedic journey down the rabbit hole that is Cher’s Twitter feed, and Word of The Gay, a weekly dissection of common words in the queer vernacular. The network also represents two existing shows, Popchops and It’s Time To Go: A Big Brother Australia Podcast. Lipp Media has a further two shows in development to be launched in August, 2018: Uneasy Bedfellows (sex and philosophy by a high-end sex worker) and Keep Up with Kish and Brodie (celebrity gossip from A to TMZ).

At the head of Lipp Media is Executive Producer Dan Gregg, “I got sick of hearing straight, white men on podcasts in Australia and needed to have a hand in diversifying the landscape”. Lipp Media focuses on shows in three categories, comedy, society & culture and TV & movies, in an effort to diversify the types of content usually associated with LGBT+ people. Dan says, “The LGBT+ community don’t just have depressing stories of woe to share; they’re hugely witty, creative and entertaining, and Lipp Media ensures its hosts are taking the lead on those conversations”. Lipp Media is proud to work with members of the LGBT+ community and strong women like writer and author Brodie Lancaster, high-end sex worker Rita Therese, and comedians Thomas Jaspers, Andy Balloch and Justin Porter.

Dan Gregg came from a career in TV production and casting, including producing music videos for some of Australia’s biggest pop stars (Delta Goodrem and Guy Sebastian) as well as stints in community radio before launching Lipp Media. His podcast Popchops has been successfully gathering steam for over four years, and has now secured sponsorship from Select Touring, Smiling Dick and Gayle.

A gay man himself, Dan continues, “Audiences need to hear their own diverse voices reflected back at them, and while those diverse voices were once, and still are, marginalised, we need to push harder for them to enter our mainstream conversations. There’s no limit to how many stories we can tell, and you know we’re doubly funnier at telling them”.
