Audioboom is expanding its Originals Network with the launch of new shows Dark History and The Southern Tea.
Dark History is hosted by YouTube star Bailey Sarian, and became an immediate global hit, reaching number 1 on Apple’s podcast chart in the US, UK, Canada and Australia, and number 1 on Spotify’s chart in the US, UK, and Australia following its launch on June 2nd.
Sarian’s Murder, Mystery and Makeup franchise has more than 10 million followers on Facebook and 5 million YouTube subscribers.
In her new podcast, she explores the chilling stories from world history that they don’t teach in school. The first episode of Dark History focuses on the Dupont chemical scandal and had more than 2 million listens in the first week.
“Ever since I started my MM&M series, I’ve found so much research on dark and twisted stories in history that I still can’t believe aren’t being taught in school. I find it fascinating,” says Sarian. “I’ve been thinking about this podcast for at least a year now and I’m so happy that it’s finally here, I hope everyone finds it as fascinating as I do.”
The Southern Tea is hosted by reality television star Lindsie Chrisley and social media influencer, Katy Harrell.
Chrisley currently hosts the successful podcast Coffee Convos, and on The Southern Tea she teams up with Harrell to discuss careers, family, faith and everything in between. The show reached Apple’s top 30 after premiering on 2 June.
“Katy and I are thrilled about the launch of our new Audioboom Original podcast, The Southern Tea!, says Chrisley. “We can’t wait to share more of our lives with you and, in the most authentic way, talking about everything from motherhood and marriage to home design, fashion, beauty, faith, and so much more.”
“Audioboom is a leader in recognizing and investing in talent,” said Brendan Regan, Executive Vice President, Content and Production. “Collaborating and building creative podcasts with engaging talent is our key focus for the growth of Audioboom Originals.”
