Slate to kick off with “Radio Headspace,” a daily meditation podcast hosted by Headspace co-founder and former Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe
Cadence13, a leading premium podcast company, and Headspace, a global leader in meditation and mindfulness, today announced a partnership to create a slate of new and original podcasts. The first, Radio Headspace, will launch later this month and will feature a daily, short-form meditation podcast hosted by Headspace co-founder and former Buddhist monk, Andy Puddicombe in an effort to help listeners cope with the heightened stress of our changing world.
Radio Headspace will feature three-to-five minute daily episodes designed to reduce stress and anxiety, increase compassion, and get your day started on the right foot. Airing Monday through Friday, this new daily dose of self-care will target listeners of all ages and backgrounds who are looking to incorporate more moments of mindfulness into their day.
This marks the first podcast from Headspace Studios, Headspace’s new multi-platform studio creating and distributing mindful living content. The in-house studio combines Headspace’s deep expertise in meditation and mindfulness with modern storytelling to develop original cross-platform content offerings. Additional podcasts from the Cadence13 and Headspace Studios collaboration will be announced at a later date.
Radio Headspace will launch on Monday, May 11, 2020, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.COM and everywhere podcasts are available. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: https://bit.ly/RadioHeadspace. New episodes will be published Monday through Friday morning
“For ten years now, Headspace has been working to improve the health and happiness of the world primarily through its in-app meditation and mindfulness content,” said Morgan Selzer, Head of Programming and Development, Headspace Studios. “By expanding beyond our owned-and-operated platforms, and by moving into podcasting with a partner like Cadence13, we believe this is another inspiring and powerful way to help people apply mindfulness to their lives. And as we look to share more mindful living content with more people around the world in television, film, and digital channels, our hope is to continue meeting people wherever they are in their mindfulness journey. ”
“As our daily routines are changing, and the world we live in has brought on an unprecedented uncertainty, Headspace continues to offer a more mindful experience,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “There’s never been a better time to bring the Headspace experience into podcasting, and we’re thrilled to be their partner in this important venture, and at this important time.”
