Ten years ago, starlet Julie Capsom crashed her car into a tree in Northern California, walked into a clearing, and vanished - leaving behind no trace and no clues, except the unidentified torso in the trunk of her car. Now, by-the-books radio reporter Bea Casely and eccentric detective Brenda Bentley have been hired by Wheyface Industries (a most unusual corporation run by a very peculiar billionaire) to find Julie Capsom - despite the fact that their past history with the Capsom story and rivalry makes them spectacularly unsuited as cohosts, both as investigators of this particular case and as collaborators. But as they investigate from the forests of the Pacific Northwest to the dark underbelly of Hollywood to the sunny streets of Italy, Bea and Brenda slowly begin to trust each other - and perhaps feel something more, too... Arden is one of the most acclaimed independent fiction podcasts of the past year. Selected for Spotify's Editors Lists as one of the best podcasts of 2018, raved in publications such as Forbes, the AV Club, and Discover Pods, Arden also spent five straight weeks in Apple Podcasts' New and Noteworthy front-page section. It has been a genuine WOM hit, and continues to build an even stronger audience in the run-up for Season 2. See here for more details: https://www.ardenpodcast.com/reviews We are currently selling ads for Season 1 (12 episodes in release) and Season 2 (13 episodes due to be released in Q3/Q4 of this year). Our audience tends to be female, LGBTQIA+ friendly, college educated, literary, interested in true crime/mysteries, and so on. We also note that one of the most popular segments on the show (and by a considerable margin) is our Wheyface Industries ad reads. Every episode, there are one to two fake advertisements for Wheyface products (such as imitation whale song CDs and AuralEmojis - like emojis, but audio-only). These ads are huge fan-favorites, and we would be delighted to apply that creativity to real products - including having the show's characters do in-character comedic ad reads.

Too, serialized shows like Arden have a long tail - even without new episodes currently releasing, we still get thousands of downloads per month as new listeners are eagerly catching up on the whole season. This will be compounded once we begin releasing Season 2.
