Tortoise Media Signs With Acast


Westwood One isn’t the only platform to get into distribution agreements Tuesday as Acast signed Tortoise Media as a publisher partner to host and distribute their journalism-based podcasts. Their flagship program The Slow Newscast, was one of Spotify’s favorite shows of 2020, and exemplifies their strategy of focusing on investigative journalism about “stories that really matter – in the UK and around the world.”

Sam Shetabi, director of Uk content at Acast, calls Tortoise Media “one of the most innovative news organizations in the world right now”, and says that, “adding Tortoise to our portfolio of publisher partners strengthens our growing journalistic podcast offering.”
