Ranker, the leading digital media brand for crowdsourced rankings, joins PodcastOne, the leading advertiser-supported podcast network, to launch The Ranker Podcast. More than 26 million people visit Ranker every month to vote on an endless series of topics, which spark passionate conversations among the public. Now, notable guests will have an opportunity to weigh in and debate these millions of user votes, as they join Zach Galifianakis doppelganger and podcast host Daniel Kohn. A journalist and Ranker’s Alternative Media Specialist, Kohn will talk trending and wacky lists with his guests, give the fans an opportunity to create new lists sparked through celebrity conversation, and feature each guest’s own top ten list on a topic of interest to them. This interactive show debuts today, with new episodes every Monday at PodcastOne.com, the PodcastOne app and iTunes.
“Ranker's abundance of consumer polls and content will translate perfectly to the PodcastOne audience,” said Glenn Walker, COO, Ranker. “Listeners will be thoroughly entertained by host Daniel Kohn and notable in-studio guests as they debate and go deeper on any given topic we have collected the public's opinion on -- from current events and pop culture to life's most pressing questions and the obscure.”
PodcastOne EVP of Content Development Mike August said, “Ranker has a huge audience, which has voted a lot of PodcastOne’s shows into the site’s various podcast lists. So there is a strong Ranker audience consuming podcasts, and it’s great working with Ranker to bring a whole new angle of interaction and celebrity voices to their endless topic creations.”
