Buzzfeed has said they are getting into podcasting to “connect with our audience in as many ways as we can.” “Jenna Weiss-Berman Buzzfeeds director of audio wrote, “Podcasting gives us a chance to bring our storytelling to life in a medium that is new and fresh to us. By hosting these sound-rich talk shows, our writers have had the opportunity to develop their distinct voices, explore topics in real depth, and engage with their audiences in new ways.”
BuzzFeed is the social news and entertainment company. BuzzFeed is redefining online advertising with its social, content-driven publishing technology. BuzzFeed provides the most shareable breaking news, original reporting, entertainment, and video across the social web to its global audience of more than 200M
BuzzFeed currently has a podcasting team of two, Weiss-Berman and audio editor Julia Furlan. In April, they’ll be joined by a third, NPR producer Eleanor Kagan.
