Podcast promotion in the wild


58% of Americans haven’t listened to a single podcast in the last 30 days. The number is similar in other English-speaking countries, too. So, we welcome back our “Podcast promotion in the wild” section, which aims to share ads for podcasts that are in the real world, where those 58% might see them.

Today: a true crime podcast that launched at the end of September at the Eradicate Hate Summit in Pittsburgh. Stoppable delves into the back stories of perpetrators to solve the mystery of how and why our friends, neighbors, siblings, children and parents turn to dark acts of extreme violence against innocent victims. The QR code points to a web player with links to Apple, Spotify and iHeart.Apple Spotify
