Stak reaches 300 million all-time podcast downloads

Press Release · London, UK · via Carver PR ·

Stak today announces it has reached 300 million all-time podcast downloads across its releases, including Football Ramble, Jaack Maate’s Happy Hour, P1 with Matt and Tommy, The Interruption, Abroad in Japan, Wrestle Me and Eureka! with Rick Edwards and Dr Michael Brooks.

Since its launch in 2018, Stak has become home to over 30 shows and 12 full-time employees. It’s best known for podcasts which champion independent voices and engage communities within everything from sports to science. At the British Podcast Awards 2022, the team won Silver for ‘Best Network’ and ‘Best Sports Podcast’ for Football Ramble Presents. It followed that success up this year with a nod for Best Sports Documentary at the Sports Journalism Awards for its Inside The Qatar World Cup series.

Founded by Jon Teague (CEO), Luke Moore (COO) and Pete Donaldson (Creative Director), the Stak team have gone from the kitchen table to 300 million downloads. The trio first found success in 2007, before the company even existed, when their recording of friends talking about football sparked the hugely successful Football Ramble.

Stak began this year with a string of new releases. In February, it launched the chart-topping P1 with Matt and Tommy – the audio pit stop for all things Formula 1 soared to #1 in the Spotify Top Charts, plus #3 in Apple’s Top Shows and #1 in Apple’s Sports Charts. Pop Off with TikTok sensations Lewys Ball and Isla Loba joined the Stak slate for its second series in March, while White Wine Question Time with Kate Thornton also confirmed its move to the network in April.

Luke Moore, Stak’s COO: said: “We’re exceptionally proud to have hit the milestone of 300 million downloads. As a completely independent, self-funded business it’s a fantastic achievement and a real testament to the quality of the team we have here at Stak, the amazing broadcasters we work with every day, and of course our wonderful listeners who download our shows so loyally. We’re all very excited to set about hitting the next 300 million!”
