Queerstories podcast joins Acast Creator Network
The Queerstories podcast is now part of the Acast Creator Network.
The podcast, now onto its third series, celebrates the culture and creativity of the LGBTQI+ community and is part of a wider storytelling project by Maeve Marsden which also features a book and event series.
Acast said the podcast is vulnerable and fierce, hilarious and heartbreaking.
“Maeve has done a wonderful job in building the Queerstories community and, as the home of independent podcasting in Australia, the podcast is a great fit for the Acast family,” Jordan Lott, Acast’s content development manager for Australia and New Zealand, said.
“Knowing the connection Maeve had with her listeners, I’ve wanted Queerstories to be part of the Acast Creator Network for some time. We’re so pleased that Maeve has chosen to host Queerstories with Acast, giving audiences everywhere access to these important stories.”
Marsden said the partnership, which will involve hosting, distribution and monetisation, was the perfect next step for the podcast.
“With hundreds of episodes, the Queerstories podcast is such an incredible archive now, elevating the stories from the LGBTQI+ community that aren’t always heard,” she said.
“Partnering with a global leader in Acast allows me to bring these stories to more listeners – a perfect next step for the Queerstories project, as it continues to grow and further serve its thriving community.”
The first episode of series three features former MasterChef Australia contestant Sarah Tiong. Upcoming guests include Samuel Leighton-Fore, Ellen Van Neerven, Liv Hewson and Omar Sakr.
