Podcast News - with Pushkin Industries

Revisionist History
From Pushkin: Revisionist History is back! This season, Malcolm Gladwell focuses on experiments. Thought experiments. Failed experiments. Experiments that end up in salt factories and file drawers filled with carbon copies. Experimental endings to Hollywood classics and a deep dive involving… Will & Grace.
The Followers
In 2017, broadcaster Shelagh Fogarty began to notice the same face appearing in crowds, on the tube, outside her Leicester Square workplace. She dismissed it at first, but then the appearances became more and more noticeable - he was there when she met friends, when she travelled across London, at her local train station, and once, he was standing right outside her home in South West London. The Followers is the story of how she realised she was being stalked - and how to stop it. The show is available in full on Global Player.
Shark Attacks in Paradise
Why has there suddenly been a huge rise in shark attacks on a remote island in the Indian Ocean? Réunion: Shark Attacks in Paradise looks at the issues that could have led to the increase: it’s new today from Hyperobject Industries and Sony Music Entertainment, and available in full in The Binge.

Hintech launches a search engine and monitoring tool
Paid content

The number of shows has more than doubled in the last two years, so it can be hard to find shows to talk to - as well as see consumption details and get the right contacts.

Hintech has launched a new tool to help: a search engine for marketers to find which podcasters cover specific topics, with details about how many listeners they have, their marketing potential, ratings and comments. The tool contains contact information and everything you need to find the right podcast.
