Leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) has signed Copenhagen-based audio entertainment subscription service Podimo.
With a focus on local production and curation, Podimo offers more than 1,000 original and exclusive podcasts and audiobooks from around the world, with service available in Denmark, Germany, Spain, Norway, and throughout Latin America via partnerships that include iHeartMedia, Wondery, Paramount Network España, and the German audio platform FYEO.
Podimo’s exclusive shows include Dronningen & Kunsten (The Queen & The Arts) with Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, GAL: El Triángulo in Spain featuring former Prime Minister Felipe González, Pollux in Germany, and G-Punktet in Norway, and feature influential voices as Norwegian and German bestselling crime authors Jo Nesbø and Sebastian Fitzek, respectively. The company also successfully launched local-language translations of its own hit shows, including Mord i Nord (Murder in the North) and The Missing across a variety of markets.
Podimo, which closed $78 million on a Series B round of funding in November to support content and market expansion, doubled its output of exclusive shows week-over-week in 2021.
CAA will work on behalf of Podimo to identify and create opportunities for the company’s audio IP, formats, and stories to be told outside of the audio space, in addition to supporting the company on its business development strategy.
