Member News

The following news stories have been shared throughout the week with us in the #📢 | self-promo channel on Discord. To be included, make sure you're sharing with us!

  • From Amelia Earwolf, "I'm really happy with the content, guests, and production workflow on this week's TV, I Say w/ Ashley Ray." This week's episode featured Paul F. Tompkins and Lauren Lapkus.

  • From Anna B. Rader, "Our new episode of The Carbon Copy hits a 'controversial topic' on social media. There's nothing new about the connection between gas stoves and adverse health impacts. The latest findings build on decades of research that most American consumers have never heard of — in part due to the aggressive marketing effort by the gas industry."

  • D.T. | Space Castle has a new episode out all about the best-worst video games.

  • Sarahsarah started a newsletter about podcast marketing. Subscribe.

  • The trailer for TELL ME ABOUT IT from Multitude Productions is out now.

  • crm53 just launched a new podcast, Bad Watchdog, focused on a well-known government official who failed to properly handle several serious events over the past couple of years.
