“I have worked with just about every platform out there, and I have never seen anything to compare to what the team at Sounder has built,” added Matty Staudt, “They are also a great group of people who are passionate about what they are building. That is personally important to me.”
Jam Street has also signed deals to do creative/network structure consulting for Muddhouse Media, a growing podcast network founded by Kris Myer, an Emmy-nominated and award-winning producer who has worked for the past 20 years with the comedic duo The Farrelly Brothers, Bright Sighted Podcasting, founded by Emmy-Nominated journalist Christine O’Donnell, The Bright Sighted Network is a podcasting network that shares stories about humanity that showcase the bright side of a bad situation and Story Studio Network, one of Canada’s fastest growing networks with a deep stable of experienced and award-winning broadcast journalists. Founded by veteran radio broadcasters and father-daughter duo Dave and Erin Trafford.
“It’s truly an honor to help the talented people at these amazing networks grow, monetize, and get their quality content out to the world,” said Matty Staudt.
In addition, Jam Street will advise two start-ups, Stampede Social, the most comprehensive Instagram campaign performance tracker ever, and Audiolabs, allowing creators to distribute their audio content in podcasting, video apps, and social audio for maximum reach. They join current client OSSA Collective. A podcast advertising marketplace focused on connecting brands with female audiences. As an inclusive marketplace, they have a growing community of over 1500 women and non-binary podcast creators.
“I can’t believe that all of this has happened in the past two months,” Staudt said, “I think this shows that Jam Street is not like any other podcast company out there. Our years of experience in the space make us a go-to for podcast networks, creators, and start-ups to get counsel and direction as they navigate the podcast industry. I can’t wait to share what we are doing with our network soon!”
