All Studio71 podcasts are available for free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
“It’s been an exciting year in podcasting at Studio71 with tremendous growth in audio listens, downloads, and ad revenue,” said Stephen Perlstein, Vice President of Podcasts at Studio71. “As we continue to work with our network of talent and expand into new ventures, we strive to be the best partners for podcasters and brands alike. We’re just scratching the surface of what Studio71 has to offer the podcast world.”
Would you be surprised to learn that scientists are learning how to fight COVID-19 from the video game World of Warcraft? What if I told you that I could spoil almost any movie based on who uses an iPhone? Did you know that Disney is afraid of butts? Well, that’s Wild Wild Tech, the podcast that brings you the wildest, most bizarre, the most interesting stories about tech and how it’s shaping our culture. Wild Wild Tech is hosted by Jordan Erica Webber (The Gadget Show presenter, co-author of Ten Things Video Games Can Teach Us) and Joshua Rivera (freelance journalist covering TV, movies, games, culture) where every week we’ll uncover infamous stories in pop culture and tech and we’ll learn from the experts, and talk to the people who lived through these weird stories. These are the stories about your favorite tech companies that are seldom told, but once you hear them, you’ll never forget. Wild Wild Tech launched Wednesday, August 5.
Wild ‘Til 9 is the next podcast to premiere in the lineup and is set to launch tomorrow, August 11. What do you get when a DIY influencer dates an ex-frat-president tech mogul? Honestly we’re not really sure either, but we’re all about to find out together. Hosted by Lauren Riihimaki (LaurDIY) and boyfriend, Jeremy Lewis, Wild ’Til 9 is about relationships, spotting the red flags and giving the green lights, and the lifestyle in which this polar opposite couple found themselves. Things are about to get wild… but only until 9PM.
Preloaded is the third podcast launching this month and makes its premiere Monday, August 17. It’s the podcast that cuts through the spin of video game marketing to deliver unfiltered, honest coverage of all the upcoming games you should be looking forward to. YouTubers Jackson Van Over aka Jayvee and Josh Finderup aka Quest Mode break down the week’s news, previews, and dive into what they’re currently playing. If you’re not preloaded, you’re missing out.
