I’m Lauren Passell and I’m podcast-obsessed. I am the founder of Tink Media, a podcast marketing and PR company that has helped shows like Dani Shapiro’s Family Secrets, American Hysteria, Our Body Politic, PEOPLE magazine’s PEOPLE Every Day, and more.

Each issue of Podcast The Newsletter includes a HUGE list of my recommendations, a little note from my heart, and an interview with someone I’m obsessed with in the podcast community–someone I think you should be obsessed with, too.

xoxo lauren
