Two podcast platforms become one.

Leading aggregators Spreaker and BlogTalkRadio—hosting over 50,000 podcasts combined—are merging, with Spreaker CEO Francesco Baschieri presiding over the new company. Further details will be worked out and rolled out in the coming months. In announcing the joining, Baschieri talked about “combining Spreaker’s best-in-class mobile and web content management system and creation tools with BlogTalkRadio’s first-to-market monetization platform.”
