El podcast Startup Junkies ya está descargado en 100 países

The weekly entrepreneurial podcast also nears 100,000 total downloads

The Startup Junkies Podcast, produced by Startup Junkie Consulting and Startup Junkie Foundation, reached a historic milestone last week when it was downloaded in its 100th country outside of the United States. The weekly podcast’s international reach expands as it also nears 100,000 total downloads.

“El podcast Startup Junkies es una discusión libre y sin guión con innovadores y emprendedores de todo el mundo”, dijo el presentador del podcast Jeff Amerine, fundador y director general de Startup Junkie Consulting. "Los oyentes aprenden sobre el viaje empresarial, conocimientos clave sobre la creación de empresas, nuevas industrias emergentes, peroratas aleatorias sobre casi cualquier cosa y tal vez un poco sobre la cerveza o sidra que beben los presentadores durante el podcast". 

El podcast Startup Junkies se lanzó por primera vez en 2015 con Amerine y el coanfitrión Jon Cadieux de 455 Media y NWA Workplace. Lo que comenzó como una excusa ocasional para beber cerveza y hablar sobre emprendimiento por la tarde, según Amerine, se había convertido en un programa semanal en 2018, con empresarios locales e invitados de todo Arkansas y Estados Unidos. 

“It’s almost hard to believe,” said podcast co-host Caleb Talley, Startup Junkie Foundation’s director of marketing and events. “We’re just having fun and talking about things we enjoy, and to know thousands of people across the globe are tuning in, it’s pretty special. It also just confirms to me that a lot of eyes – or in this case ears – are on Arkansas, and especially the Northwest Arkansas venture scene.” 

The Startup Junkies Podcast has been downloaded approximately 90,000 times since November 2017, when it began tracking unique downloads. With 211 episodes released as of Oct. 1, the Startup Junkies Podcast averages approximately 425 traditional downloads an episode. 

The podcast has been downloaded in all 50 states, with the largest U.S. markets outside of Arkansas being Dallas with 5 percent of domestic downloads, San Francisco with 4 percent and Washington, D.C. with 3 percent. 

Internationally, the Startup Junkies Podcast’s largest single-country audience is in Canada, with 14 percent of all international downloads, followed by Australia with 9 percent. Europe makes up approximately 16 percent of the podcast’s international audience, with most of those downloads coming from Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and Sweden, respectively. 

Much of the show’s recent success in downloads and reach has been spurred by the support of Go Rogue X, a Northwest Arkansas-based video marketing and podcast consultancy firm, and high profile guests that include former AOL CEO Steve Case, The Hustle founder Sam Parr, former Stax Records chairman Al Bell, and more. Upcoming episodes include conversations with VCC founder Sam Alley, Slim Chickens founder Tom Gordon, Sarah Frey of Frey Farms, and former White House Chief of Staff Thomas McLarty. 

"Si quieres aprender y divertirte al mismo tiempo, nos encantaría que lo comprobaras", dijo Amerine.
