Dave Keine, head of product and marketing at Podchaser, is our guest on Between 2 Mics. Zach and Rock sit down with Keine to discuss what’s new in the world of Podchaser and how it relates to the state of podcasting overall. Podchaser bills itself as “Your Daily Source for Podcast Discovery.” Another way to look at it is that Podchaser is the IMDB for podcasts. Users can follow podcasts, podcasters, make lists of their favorite shows, and make creator profiles for their own shows. It’s all about the data. There are currently more than 8.5 million credits attributed on the site.
Podchaser recently announced a successful round of funding. From their press release: Podchaser, the “IMDb for podcasts,” announced $4M in funding led by Greycroft, with additional investors including Advancit Capital, LightShed Ventures, Powerhouse Capital, High Alpha, Hyde Park Venture Partners, and Poplar Ventures. Participating angels include founder and former President of TrendKite A.J. Bruno, CEO of Ad Results Media Marshall Williams, and partner of Shamrock Capital Mike LaSalle.
