Podimo, the fast-growing subscription service for audio entertainment and podcasts, announced that Sachin Doshi has joined the company as Chief Content Officer. Following the announcement of their Series B Round investment in November 2021, Podimo now strengthens their executive management team with the former VP of Content at Spotify and Director of Public Product at Twitter.
Doshi will lead Podimo’s Global Content team to unlock new audio experiences and help Podimo scale to new users, in new and existing markets, while ensuring both listeners and creators are always rewarded for their engagement.
“I’m excited to be joining the team at Podimo,” says Doshi. “Podimo has thrived with a strategic focus on content in local markets and native languages. With that focus in place, I look forward to working across the organization, to marry content and product and unlock the full potential of a premium audio experience.”
“Sachin’s history in media on both sides of the marketplace is inspiring, and perfectly suited to help Podimo continue to evolve our user experience and economic model for creators and rights holders,” says Podimo CEO Morten Strunge.” We’re thrilled to bring his vision and expertise to the Podimo family.”
In his time at Universal Music Group and Spotify, Doshi helped establish a new revenue model for the recorded music industry. Doshi brings his wealth of experience as VP of Content at Spotify and Director of Product at Twitter to expand Podimo’s creator-fueled economy, while further enhancing a seamless, high-quality user experience.
In 2015, he co-founded the subscription service Scroll, which charged its members a monthly fee in exchange for an ad-free reading experience on participating news sites, and shared that fee back with the sites each user read. Scroll was acquired by Twitter in May 2021.
