RUINOUS Media is a podcast and media production company that helps brands and individuals create, plan, produce, distribute, and market their podcasts and audio works.
“We got into this to celebrate musicians and music, and try to add something to the creativity of it,” said co-founder Chris Duryee.
They’re a hardworking team of audiophiles and writers, musicians, and marketing nerds.
“We don’t even get paid, we do it because it makes us happy.”
The podcast is not necessarily new but the popularity is growing tremendously amidst the pandemic. Over 55% of the US population have listened to a podcast. In 2020, a survey showed over 155 million people listen to a podcast every week.
There’s a podcast for everything, and listeners love the convenience.
“People obviously have more time nowadays to listen to podcasts and you can have control of what you are listening, too,” said Joe Plummer of The Tour Stories podcast.
In the RUINOUS podcasts, listeners get unique music content through deep dives on a variety of topics within the industry.
