It’s no secret what Spotify wants to be the biggest thing in the podcast world. The record label was signed Joe Rogan’s show last year as unique, and deals with it and Obamas, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Now, you can add Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s Chair Specialist to a pile. As of July 1, Chair Specialist will be Spotify only. In addition, Spotify will have the first show of new features from the show’s parent company, Armchair Umbrella Network.
“Chair Specialist it will still be a pre-existing show, but it is an additional opportunity that only Spotify can give us, “said colleague and producer Monica Padman.” We hope to continue to bring our content and free home to our audience through this unique platform. “
The special relationship is not surprising. Chair Specialist is one of the most popular podcasts, and featured guests such as Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton and Malcom Gladwell (as well as many of Shepard’s most famous friends). It’s one of those shows that also works to start the world of the podcast, where the crowds are backwards and the interviews aren’t just legitimate or organized like state radio. Podcasting is still a limited space, so Spotify needs anything that can get more listeners to shoot.
