HIT PODCASTS, THE WAY I HEARD IT WITH MIKE ROWE AND REDHANDED, SIGN WITH AUDIOBOOM
NEW YORK, NY — OCTOBER 5, 2021 — Audioboom, the leading global podcast network, announces the signing of two hit shows; The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe and award winning UK true crime podcast, RedHanded.
Mike Rowe is best known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” a title he earned on the iconic TV series Dirty Jobs, is a producer, writer, narrator, and author. The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe launched in 2016 with Rowe telling true(ish) tales you don’t know about people you do, and it has transitioned to a mosaic of storytelling and conversation with weekly guests. Delivered with Rowe’s signature blend of charm, wit, and self-deprecating humor, the podcast is full of surprising revelations, sharp observations, and often intimate moments from Rowe and his guests’ lives and careers.
Since its inception, The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe has been a staple on Apple and Spotify’s podcast charts, and its 200+ episodes have garnered more than 170 million downloads.
“Full disclosure, my podcast is not as filthy as Dirty Jobs, but I’ve been assured it’s no less entertaining,” said Rowe. “True, it was mother who assured me of this, but she’s honest, mostly, and her taste is impeccable.”
Award winning true crime podcast, RedHanded offers a weekly dose of murder, wit and “WTFs”. Hosts Hannah Maguire and Suruthi Bala jump head-first into all manner of macabre madness, covering everything from big time serial killers to hauntings, possessions, disturbing mysteries, bizarre whodunits and basically anything that tickles their creepy fancy.
RedHanded won the Listeners Choice prize at the 2021 UK Podcast Awards. “As a hyper-growth podcast, we are really excited to be working with Audioboom because their ambition, vision, and passion is a perfect match for ours,” said Maguire and Bala, co-hosts of RedHanded.
“The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe and RedHanded are well established podcasts with loyal fanbases.” says Brendan Regan, EVP Content & Production. “Audioboom remains a dynamic and growing platform that offers these shows excellent opportunities to support their continued success.”
