“We’re thrilled to be entering into such an exciting partnership with iHeartMedia,” said Sean Glynn, CEO of Novel. “Pairing Novel’s best-in-class storytelling credentials with iHeartMedia’s excellent editorial judgment and global distribution is an incredibly compelling combination.”
“This new partnership will allow us to produce deeply researched, narratively rich investigative series at scale that grip listeners right off the bat,” added Max O’Brien, Head of Content at Novel. “We couldn’t be more proud to be the first UK-based podcast company to sign a slate deal with iHeartMedia.”
“The Assault on America” tells the inside story of the insurrection at the Capitol.
“Deliver Us From Ervil” is an investigative true-crime series in which a team of journalists enters a lawless town on the border of Mexico run by a secretive religious sect living in exile and outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. government since 1924.
