Former iHM Podcast VP Launches His Own Podcast Network


Jam Street Media, an LA-based podcast production and consulting firm, has announced the launch of its podcast network with a portfolio of shows. Founded by Matty Staudt, former vice president of podcast programming at iHeartRadio and director of content at Stitcher, the company hopes to help proven talent make their great show ideas a reality, as well as find great independent shows currently being produced that can benefit from their years of experience producing and promoting podcasts.

"I have spent a career working with talent to create important and long-lasting shows," said Staudt. "I want to make shows that break the mold, appeal to a diversity of audiences, and leave people feeling good about themselves. We are an industry that creates companionship and comfort, which is what our network will provide. I'm also looking forward to finding great independent producers who can use our knowledge of production and business to gain the audiences they deserve."

Jam Street Media's newly-launched podcast network features three shows:

  • Big Swing Podcast, a podcast hosted by Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling and longtime sports fan Cooper Surles with pro athlete guests, talking about sports, pop culture, business, and everything in between. It's where athletes go to talk about sports.
  • Deep Dive with Vanessa Mdee, a talk show hosted by the International pop star and personality, featuring inspirational guests, personal stories, and poetry.
  • Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco, features the true stories as told by the real Donnie Brasco, Joe Pistone, about his time with the mob. Sometimes the real story is better than the movie.

The company plans to expand its network in the coming months, with the acquisition of a number of new podcasts and IP.

Added Staudt, "I am so lucky to have found our new Executive Producer, Amanda Rosenberg who will be working on several projects that celebrate women including "Wake Up," the true story of a woman who lost her memories to amnesia and was shocked about what she learned when they started coming back. We are also working with several documentarians and reporters to bring their stories to podcasting."

Jam Street Media has partnered with podcast giant Acast for the hosting, distribution, and monetization of its programming.
