Voxnest Announces Bloom Content Development Program
|RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, August 13, 2019|
Voxnest, a podcast solutions specialist, is teaming with BLOOM, a podcast content development program and its hosting product Spreaker. It becomes the first independent podcast partner selected to launch the program "Flatrock: A Cold Case Podcast." BLOOM was developed in an effort to assist creative, independent podcasts that could use the support of a larger team like Spreaker. Podcasts selected for the program receive support on content curation, technology and promotion that smaller podcasters need.
"Just because you have a good story to share doesn't mean you have the tools to make sure it can be heard," said Voxnest Jonathan Zenti. "Our goal is to find talented podcasters who have an interesting idea or message that they're passionate about telling, but are struggling to take it to the next level. Whether their script and concept needs improvement or they don't have a professional audio skillset, our team helps them fill the gaps so there's nothing standing in the way of success."
The content development program has five podcast launches planned for the year, starting with "Flatrock," a show that's investigating the case of Nashville's Kathy Jones who was murdered in 1969 on a walk to the roller skating rink. The podcast's Kickstarter fundraising campaign caught the attention of Spreaker's team and they have since been working towards the show's release that's slated for August 13.
"Working with Spreaker on this project has been so helpful," said "Flatrock" host and producer Olivia Lind. "During my investigation of Kathy Jones' cold case, I learned about a very strong murder suspect who was never mentioned to the public. This story needs to be told, and I'm not sure I could have accomplished it without Spreaker's help."
