Spoke Media signs popular former Panoply podcast Family Ghosts

PRESS RELEASE — February 15, 2019

Dallas TX and New York NY, USA—Premier podcast content studio Spoke Media has partnered with popular former Panoply podcast Family Ghosts to co-produce and distribute the show’s second and third seasons. The partnership sees a podcast that boasts a loyal fanbase and has reached the coveted Top Ten of the Apple Podcast Charts joining with a content team responsible for six Apple Top 200 podcasts.

“I could not be happier,” said Spoke Media Co-Founder and EVP of Content, Alia Tavakolian. “Family Ghosts is a beautiful, highly produced show that fits perfectly with the aesthetic we’re working to build with our new content.”

After an unexpected hiatus in the wake of Panoply’s shutdown of editorial operations last fall, Sam Dingman (Family Ghosts creator and host) is excited to get the show rolling again, saying, “From my first conversations with Keith, Alia, and all the artists and storytellers on the Spoke team, I could tell that we shared an array of passions around art and storytelling. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to continue Family Ghosts in partnership with them, and can’t wait to get our stories back in the headphones of the Ghost Family.”

“Sam is a special talent,” said Spoke Founder & President, Keith Reynolds. “We try to find partners with ambitions that match ours; creators who are committed to great stories and diverse voices, creators who are looking to build the next wave, introduce a new style. Sam fits that description beautifully.”

Family Ghosts is the first in a new slate of shows coming from Spoke Media in 2019, and will return to audiences on all podcast platforms on May 15th for its second season, with a third season set to premier later in the year.
