Melinda Wittstock launches the first-ever interactive and gamified podcast network

PRESS RELEASE

Bethesda MD, USA—Serial entrepreneur and media-tech mastermind, Melinda Wittstock, announced today the launch of an all-new socially interactive mobile podcast platform, called Podopolo™. Podopolo™ empowers content creators to profit from their podcasts and engage their audiences to make a positive difference in the world – all while having fun, connecting with friends, and winning prizes.

Surprisingly, only a small percentage of podcasters earn an income from their podcasts and with the creation of Podopolo™, this will change, no matter the size of the audience. On Podopolo™, podcasters get discovered, engage fans, and unlock revenue, while podcast fans discover new favorite podcasts, connect with hosts and each other, and win prizes and rewards as they interact with content, put learning into action to enhance their lives, and join mission-driven quests. Podopolo’s AI-driven deep audience intelligence enables advertisers and sponsors to target specific audiences on-app and on-air, and also drive higher return on investment via higher consumer-brand engagement rates through social interaction and gamification. Podopolo™ is the first to enable “content as conversation” rewarding individuals and communities in achievement-oriented activities and actions for social impact so podcast fans can unlock a myriad of bonuses including free products and services from their favorite brands. A true all-service network: Everyone who interacts with the mobile network will benefit from doing so. The three tiers of podcaster membership service range from $97 - $497 per month and include transparent audience analytics (behavior, interests, influence, demographics) as well as monetization for podcasters from advertising and a paywall for premium content.

“Our goal at Podopolo™ is to improve lives and raise consciousness around the globe by connecting diverse communities to world-changing content and each other on the first interactive and gamified podcast network,” states Wittstock. “By creating profitable opportunities for podcasters, consumers, brands, and businesses to change lives, as well as address the planet’s most pressing challenges, we make sure mega-impact ideas get amplified in the way they deserve.”
