In 2022, podcasts will be one of the most prominent forms of media and entertainment. Whether the subject is music, cooking, parenting, or education, podcasts have taken the media industry by storm and proven that they’re here to stay. With that being said, it’s only fitting to create a network that’s dedicated to podcasts for us and by us — and that’s where REVOLT comes in. REVOLT is prioritizing the culture (as always) with the launch of the REVOLT Podcast Network.

“Everything REVOLT does is with the culture in mind, and we’re excited to bring impactful new content with the REVOLT Podcast Network. This new initiative will provide a platform for many rising thought leaders, many of whom are incredible Black women, who will share compelling stories and insights with our audience,” said Detavio Samuels, CEO of REVOLT. “Tapping into news, comedy, sports, business, entrepreneurship, among other topics, the REVOLT Podcast Network is a leading example of our commitment to creating entertaining and educational content while uplifting Black voices.”

Featuring knowledgeable and entertaining hosts such as Yung Miami, Smoke DZA, and Big Loon, there’s genuinely a bit of something for everyone. VP of Business Development and GM of REVOLT Podcast Network Aki Garrett spoke a bit about the importance of catering to Black listeners and focusing on Black culture. He explained why that’s REVOLT’s mission: “There is significant demand from Black podcast listeners for more authentic, entertaining, and empowering content highlighting Black culture. Not only is REVOLT Podcast Network bringing new and creative audio podcast shows to market, but we are also amplifying the voices of existing podcasts that will benefit from the cultural authority and megaphone REVOLT possesses. I am thrilled to officially launch REVOLT Podcast Network, which will become the go-to podcast destination for Black culture.”

Stacy Ike is the definition of a passionate storyteller and interviewer who brings welcoming energy to each story she’s highlighting. She’s an H-Town native with Nigerian roots and graduated from the University of Missouri with a major in journalism. She’s interviewed everyone from Viola Davis to Oprah Winfrey, and she was the very first live show host on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). Ike brings all these talents to her “human2human” podcast, where passion and purpose are found in every episode.

“REVOLT is a cultural staple in the community and joining the podcast network was in alignment with my passion to enrich the ‘human2human’ experience. ‘human2human’ invites vulnerability into every conversation, and I wanted that to be celebrated amongst people in every walk of life, which is where REVOLT Podcast Network and I align. I look forward to being at the helm of encouraging people to stay curious about their world and creating lasting impact that enlightens our community towards their highest selves within their relationships, careers, and personal lives,” says Stacy Ike.
