This week and next will be short reviews. I’m on a summer slow-down with a move and a trip, but I’ll still try to bring a couple of the biggest highlights as I see them for each week.
Wolf Den: Last week brought big news for followers of the business of podcasting as media company E.W. Scripps announced its acquisition of Midroll Media, the parent company of the Earwolf and Wolfpop podcast networks. Midroll CEO Adam Sachs used the Wolf Den podcast to discuss the acquisition with two of his new co-workers from E.W. Scripps, Adam Symson and JB Kropp. If you’re a fan of any of the podcasts in the Midroll family and are interested in what the acquisition could mean, this one’s worth a listen.
I Was There Too: Speaking of Midroll podcasts, the Wolfpop network podcast on which I recently wrote a spotlight article celebrated its 20th episode with a highlight reel from the previous 19. Matt Gourley hand selected some of his and his listeners’ favorite stories for this special episode, which Gourley said he plans to do every 20 or so episodes. If you haven’t been listening to this fun podcast about iconic scenes from film and television history, now’s a great time to jump in.
Kill Me Now: Comedian and actress Amy Schumer sat down for a fun and fascinating discussion with Judy Gold on Gold’s podcast last week. Schumer talked about her new brand of feminism and growing up with a father who has MS, among other topics.
