HBO Max, Rooster Teeth and DC announced “Podly,” the official podcast that will recap the thrilling episodes of the Max Original “Peacemaker,” based on characters from DC.
“Podly” will premiere in conjunction with “Peacemaker” beginning on Jan. 13, 2022. New episodes of the video podcast will be available on HBO Max and DC and HBO Max’s YouTube channels, with an audio-only version available across all audio platforms.
Hosts Fiona Nova (Achievement Hunter, G4TV) and Ify Nwadiwe (“Grand Crew,” ”Tigtone”) will react to the latest episodes of “Peacemaker” on “Podly.” Each week the companion podcast will dig into the wild, badass, hilarious thrill ride of a show that is “Peacemaker,” and will get deep with the cast and creatives of the series.
“As a big fan of DC, I’m excited to dig into this show with Ify,” said Nova. “It’s awesome that Rooster Teeth continues to give its community a platform where we can discuss highly anticipated shows like ‘Peacemaker.’” Nwadiwe adds, “I’m thrilled we get to explore this character and uncover his backstory for fans. Fiona and I are going to have so much fun; we’re both really excited to collaborate on this show.”
This is the third video podcast Rooster Teeth has produced for HBO Max. In 2021, Rooster Teeth produced “The Touch Base,” the official podcast for “The Nevers,” and “un:LOCKED,” the official “gen:LOCK” podcast. All of these podcasts feature Rooster Teeth talent as hosts and are distributed as video podcasts on HBO Max.
“Podly” is a part of HBO Max’s continued investment in the podcasting space and joins other new HBO Max podcasts, including the “And Just Like That…The Writers Room,” “Succession” podcast, “Batman: The Audio Adventures,” “Band of Brothers,” and “Trade Secrets.”
Rooster Teeth produces over a dozen podcasts from studios in Los Angeles, California and Austin, Texas, including “Face Jam,” “Off Topic,” “Black Box Down,” “Red Web” and the long-running “The Rooster Teeth Podcast” which has aired more than 500 episodes.
Rooster Teeth also operates The Roost podcast network, a top 20 network which partners with “The H3 Podcast,” “This Might Get Weird” with Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart, Phil Defranco’s podcast “A Conversation With,” and “Kinda Funny” shows among others. The Roost represents more than 280MM views and 10MM audio monthly downloads across its network.
Audiences can tune into “Podly” on HBO Max, and on the DC and HBO Max YouTube channels beginning Jan. 13, 2022. An audio-only version of “Podly” will be available on all audio platforms.
