Rebecca Delgadois about to ring the Alarm(ist)…
The Puerto Rican actress/writer will be part of the inaugural slate for female-focused podcast network Earios.
Delgado’s podcast is entitled The Alarmist. The Good Placeactress sits down with a guest to analyze and scrutinize history’s greatest disasters, from the sinking of the Titanic to the break-up of The Beatles, to find out what went wrong and who is to blame.
Delgado’s podcast joins a roster that includes projects by Love creator Lesley Arfin, Margaret Choand Glow’sKimmy Gatewood
Earios was set up by former UTAand WME comedy agent Priyanka Mattoo, who also ran Electric Dynamitewith Jack Black, Maria Blasucciand Amanda Lund.
Last year, the company successfully raised money through a Kickstartercampaign and secured enough to launch 12 shows this year. It has also partnered with podcast company Acastto launch the slate, which will launch three shows at the start of July and will run new shows every couple of weeks.
It’s designed to produce female-fronted podcasts after Lund and Blasucci, who previously hosted their own independent shows, failed to find podcast companies run by women even though over 30% of shows are hosted or co-hosted by women and women make up half of podcast listeners.
