Bradley Davis, Founder/CEO of Podchaser, talks about launching a start up, fundraising, and his evolving views on money.
Podchaser is a Venture Capital-backed podcast database company founded in 2016 and led by CEO Bradley Davis. Sometimes called “the IMDb of podcasting,” the company is currently focused on three core initiatives: advanced search and discovery, industry-wide data standardization, and data-driven marketplaces for connection. Features include ratings and reviews, shareable lists, detailed tagging, and more than 4 million creator and guest credits. Leveraging its unique database of credits, Podchaser recently announced its Podchaser Connect service that will pair compelling guests — brand representatives, university professors, authors, domain experts, and more — with podcasts to unlock the tremendous influence of the intimate medium and grow podcast audiences.
