The Parents On Demand Network (POD Network) is a collection of podcasts with content specifically created for families. Through our website and network app, parents can easily find and subscribe to programming that’s specific to their family’s interests and needs. For podcasters, the network is a great place to collaborate with similar shows, share ideas and resources and grow their audience.
The network was founded by fellow podcaster, Sunny Gault, owner of New Mommy Media, a San Diego-based business producing multiple podcasts for new and expecting parents. Since launching in 2012, New Mommy Media has released more than 600 episodes focusing on a range of pregnancy and parenting topics. By cross-promoting her own shows, Sunny discovered the importance of collaborating with other podcasts to grow an audience. She also recognized the need to simplify and improve how parents (and other listeners) search for similar shows.
Today, the Parents On Demand Network relies on a team of experienced advisors to influence important decisions, encourage growth, and preserve the network as a valuable resource for families around the world.
