We likely work with some of your favorite brands and publishers and handle over 10 billion events a month. Our mission is simple, we are looking to grow the podcast industry.

By providing a platform for brands to optimize results, we encourage investment in podcast advertising, and by proxy to publishers. The podcasting industry has seen a lot of growth in the past few years, and we believe it has more room to grow.
