Jenny Claffey rejoins Acast with award-winning Red Room podcast

Red Room, a seasonal ‘look down the rabbit hole’ of cults, true crime, conspiracy theories and unsolved mysteries, has signed to Acast.

When the hosts of one the most iconic Irish podcasts of the past decade, It Galz went their separate ways in 2021, host Jenny Claffey continued to bring her journalistic storytelling to podcasts when she launched Red Room, which has gone on to win an Irish Podcasting Award.

According to podcast industry data experts Podchaser, cult podcasts are one of the biggest growing genres in true crime and real-life podcasts, proving that the audience for the weird and wonderful is there and ready to engage.

Jenny says: “I am so excited to once again be working with Acast and to bring my show, Red Room, to thousands of potential advertisers in Ireland and beyond. My aim with Red Room has always been to shine a light on the dark underbelly of society and tell these stories to other curious minds, who share my fascination with all things macabre.

“I do not doubt that with Acast’s help in audience growth, insights and data analysis, the stories told on Red Room will reach far and wide, to those who have a thirst for knowledge, and perhaps a fascination with all things dark, mysterious and the unexplored.”

Jennifer Dollard, Content Director for Acast Ireland added: “Your favourite true crime podcast has arrived on Acast. Jenny is one of the hardest-working hosts, and the Red Room podcast is going to provide us with must-listen takes on crime, conspiracy theories and cults.

“She’s rightfully already won awards for the podcast, and here at Acast, we’ll be working closely with her on connecting her to the right advertisers, brands and audiences for her to grow Red Room even further.” said.

The new series of Red Room launches today for a run of 12 episodes, with each focusing on one true crime case – the majority are from Ireland. 

You can also dive in deeper with Jenny and support her and the podcast directly through a Patreon membership, gaining access to exclusive first listens and chatting in the Red Room Discord server.
