Laura Ingraham “owed $919,660” by podcast firm
American conservative television host Laura Ingraham says she is owed almost a million dollars by podcast company Quake Media, according to a court complaint. The Daily Beast reports that Quake Media repeatedly failed to make payments to Ingraham. Quake Media was a $2.99/month podcast subscription platform: it stopped posting on Twitter more than a year ago, and its website appears to have stopped working over the last few months. Its show with Andrew Cuomo closed last week.
