Podcasts are the future. That’s not hyperbole, and, no, that’s not entirely a fact either, but it’s a notion that’s generally agreed upon by the leading figures of New Media, industry analysts, and advertisers alike. As Wired recently reported, podcast listeners are “a holy grail of engagement,” making the medium not just a bubble, but a boom — “and that boom is only getting louder.”
In keeping with the times, Consequence of Sound is proud to announce the formation of the Consequence Podcast Network (CPN). Led by Director Cap Blackard, the network plans to shift the publication’s 10-year-old brand into the podcast arena with a series of exciting shows that reflect, evolve, and expand Consequence of Sound‘s original content in new and refreshing ways.
“At Consequence, we’ve always held true to being a down-to-earth, personal voice in the world of media journalism,” Blackard says. “There’s no modern platform more personal than podcasts, and I’m excited that our fans and media-lovers in general get to know us even more intimately than before. We’re gonna have a lot of fun.”
Currently, the network offers eight series with several more on the way:
