With over 24 million downloads in over 200 countries of her “That Sounds Fun” podcast since 2014, as well as 300,000 engaged readers, fans, and followers every day through her online channels, popular author and podcaster Annie F. Downs announced today that she is launching her own That Sounds Fun Podcast Network.
With over 75,000 downloads of her “That Sounds Fun” podcast already happening two times each week, the network will of course include her own podcast, as well as “Annie and Eddie Keep Talking,” a spin off of her “That Sounds Fun Quarantine” show that began in early March amidst her own self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With a goal to provide a diverse collection of shows for a variety of listeners, the network is in talks with existing shows to partner with, but also currently developing original programming as well, including DADVILLE, hosted by Dave Barnes and Jon McLaughlin that will launch this summer.
“I absolutely love creating the ‘That Sounds Fun’ podcast episodes,” she says, “but I also love the idea of helping others create shows and distribute shows that I know my audience, and many other people, will love and learn from, and share. I couldn’t be more excited about launching this new podcast network!”
With an active, engaged, and extremely loyal audience, Downs’ network of influence includes top-tier leaders in film, music, sports, ministry, and publishing. With support from such well-known names as Tim Tebow, Danielle Walker and Samantha Ponder.
