PODCASTONE is launching a scripted drama series, "TELLING STORIES," with serialized daily stories beginning every MONDAY. The show, developed by BLACKSTONE AUDIO, launched this week with "TELLING STORIES: EXTINCTION HORIZON," a story of a race to find a cure for a deadly strain of Ebola that threatens the world.
BLACKSTONE Head of Business Development RICK BLEIWEISS said, “I am thrilled that we could put this podcast together with PODCASTONE. I know that podcast listeners will love the fabulous stories, which are told by some of the world's greatest story-tellers, that we will be presenting every week.”
BLACKSTONE CEO JOSH STANTON said, “I believe that anyone who enjoys hearing a riveting and exciting story will want to listen to each of our new weekly story podcasts. In addition to just being wonderful stories, and most everyone loves to have a good story told to them, they are a perfect way to pass the time whether you're traveling, exercising, cleaning the house, driving in the car, or just relaxing."
“Scripted, dramatic content is growing in the podcast space because people can listen to entertaining shows while doing anything, and from anywhere – no screen needed,” said PODCASTONE Founder and Executive Chairman NORM PATTIZ. “We are building our commitment to dramatic and scripted programming, and TELLING STORIES will bring great new opportunities for our listeners and advertisers.”
