ABOUT CROWD NETWORK
We are an ambitious podcast network based in Manchester that specialises in unforgettable stories and personalities. Using the best presenters, producers and writers, we create conversations you have to share.
Podcasts become communities when listeners feel they belong. We make ground-breaking audio that makes people feel part of something bigger than themselves.
We created The Joe Marler Show, American Vigilante, The Sam and Billie Show, We Didn’t Start the Fire, Go Love Yourself, The Secret History of Flight 149 and many more. We have had 10 million downloads so far.
At Crowd, we are welcoming, inclusive and collaborative. Therefore, we are particularly keen to hear from applicants that are underrepresented in the podcast and media industry, such as those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds or those with disabilities.
