Two hit shows; The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe and award-winning UK true crime podcast, RedHanded have signed to Audioboom.
Mike Rowe, who is best known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” a title he earned on the iconic TV series Dirty Jobs, is a producer, writer, narrator, and author.
The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe launched in 2016 with Rowe telling true(ish) tales you don’t know about people you do, and it has transitioned into a mix of storytelling and conversation with weekly guests.
Since its inception, the podcast has regularly featured on Apple and Spotify’s podcast charts, and its 200+ episodes have seen more than 170 million downloads.
“Full disclosure, my podcast is not as filthy as Dirty Jobs, but I’ve been assured it’s no less entertaining,” said Rowe. “True, it was mother who assured me of this, but she’s honest, mostly, and her taste is impeccable.”
Award winning true crime podcast, RedHanded offers a weekly dose of murder, wit and “WTFs”. Hosts Hannah Maguire and Suruthi Bala jump head-first into all manner of macabre madness, covering everything from big time serial killers to hauntings, possessions, disturbing mysteries, bizarre whodunits and basically anything that tickles their fancy!
RedHanded won the Listeners Choice prize at the 2021 UK Podcast Awards. Co-hosts Maguire and Bala said: “As a hyper-growth podcast, we are really excited to be working with Audioboom because their ambition, vision, and passion is a perfect match for ours”.
“The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe and RedHanded are well established podcasts with loyal fanbases.” says Brendan Regan, EVP Content & Production. “Audioboom remains a dynamic and growing platform that offers these shows excellent opportunities to support their continued success.”
