Expansions of our flagship, ongoing series include The Verge’s The Vergecast and Vox’s The Ezra Klein Show, which will each begin publishing twice weekly starting next week, and Vox’s The Weeds, which will publish special episodes starting the first week of October about the 2018 U.S. midterm elections.

And, in addition to this new and expanded programming, we are also pleased to welcome football fans to a portfolio of 32 NFL podcasts — one for each team — from SB Nation.

“The breadth of our new slate signifies just where the Vox Media Podcast Network is headed,” said Marty Moe, president of Vox Media. “Never has our podcasting been stronger — from the talent, to the studio capabilities, to the diversity of programming, not to mention the innovative advertising opportunities. Our audiences have come to respect the authority we have in so many categories, so we’re excited to introduce a whole new lineup of shows that they can tune into for nearly every relevant topic.”

“We’re psyched to welcome Scott Galloway to the Vox Media Podcast Network and look forward to hearing him make more bold technology and media predictions with Kara Swisher,” said Nishat Kurwa, executive producer of audio at Vox Media.

Scott Galloway said, “I just go where they send me. Recode is a great platform and Kara is an original thinker. Let’s cause some trouble.”

As podcast consumption continues to grow, the Vox Media Podcast Network has become a leading publisher of high-quality audio programming, with significant investments in production, talent, marketing and sales. Vox Media offers a comprehensive set of podcast advertising opportunities that include industry-standard host reads and endorsements, but also push them further, such as Kara Swisher’s HBO-sponsored fictional interview with Silicon Valley’s Russ Hanneman on Recode Decode. Participating sponsors in this fall’s slate include smartwater, QuickBooks, TriNet and other leading brands in the technology, automotive, food & beverage and finance categories. For advertising inquiries, please reach out to our sales team at podcast-sales@voxmedia.com.

With the release of the fall slate, Vox Media now includes a broad portfolio of audio programming across business, technology, news & policy, sports and dining. The Vox Media Podcast Network produces a variety of popular podcasts across Vox Media’s editorial networks and with select external partners, including Recode’s Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher and Recode Media with Peter Kafka; The Verge’s The Vergecast and Converge with Casey Newton; Vox’s The Weeds, The Ezra Klein Show, and Today, Explained; plus many more from SB Nation, Eater, and Polygon.
