    Adam Carolla Show
    The Adam Carolla Show is fifteen years old. As a celebration, fifteen of Carolla’s most memorable episodes featuring stars such as Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage, Alec Baldwin, Michael Mann, Francis Ford Coppola, Albert Brooks, Jimmy Kimmel, Mike Tyson and Christian Bale will be featured in a special The Adam Carolla Show podcast collection available in Tesla cars.
    1619: The College Edition
    Spotify launched 1619: The Podcast Edition - the result of a Spotify-funded NextGen podcast course with Howard University and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Nikole Hannah-Jones, Knight Chair in Race and Journalism. The student-produced podcast makes compelling connections to the ways that slavery still impacts their lives and ours. A listening party was held earlier this week.
    Podnews Weekly Review
    Play trailerThe Podnews Weekly Review talks with Jeremy King from the M&M Awards, Sean Howard from Flightpath, and Sam Sethi discusses how ActivityPub might work in joining up the disparate world of podcast apps, in a section he may be surprised to learn hasn’t been edited out.

Podcast promotion in the wild

(The “let’s clear some of the backlog” edition)

Dining with Dills

    Dining With Dills Podcast
    Dining with Dills: “I saw the attached yard sign in Pasadena, California the other day,” says reader Michael.



    Unapologetic with Andrew Fitzsimons & Erica-Cody
    Behold! A bus! In Dublin, Ireland! It’s for Unapologetic and it’s put there by Acast. (The ad, not the bus. The bus was probably there already.)

Suzy and Friends

    Suzy & Friends
    Kiwi kids show Suzy and friends get the double-billboard treatment in Auckland, New Zealand.

Impact Theory

    Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
    The obligatory picture of a billboard in Times Square comes from Podnews reader Stephanie, for Impact Theory. “Not the Amazon billboard,” she adds. Indeed.

Cold Slice

The Cold Slice
Finally for now, The Cold Slice, another podcast that correctly adds the word “podcast” when it isn’t in a podcast app, bought a billboard to promote their show. Their Reddit post says that they spent $300 and got 80 listeners (“some of whom stuck it out and still listen”). Dylan was told by someone in the subreddit to send us a picture.

We love these. Spot some marketing for podcasts in the real world? Hit reply and send us a (landscape) photograph.
