New podcast network Lipp Media launches in Australia
Australia’s newest podcast network Lipp Media has launched with three original shows.
Lipp media is a collaborative partnership for on-demand, digital audio by women and members of the LGBT+ community, and facilitates commercial brand integration to ensure the development of popular, well-produced and profitable podcasts.
The three original podcasts launched at The Gays Are Revolting – “a dedicated weekly news source for contemporary gays”, Cher and Retweet – “a comedic journey down the rabbit hole that is Cher’s Twitter feed” and Word of The Gay – “a weekly dissection of common words in the queer vernacular”.
“I got sick of hearing straight, white men on podcasts in Australia and needed to have a hand in diversifying the landscape,” said Lipp Media executive producer Dan Gregg.
“The LGBT+ community don’t just have depressing stories of woe to share; they’re hugely witty, creative and entertaining, and Lipp Media ensures its hosts are taking the lead on those conversations”.
Lipp Media is working with the LGBT+ community and strong women like writer and author Brodie Lancaster, high-end sex worker Rita Therese, and comedians Thomas Jaspers, Andy Balloch and Justin Porter.
“Audiences need to hear their own diverse voices reflected back at them, and while those diverse voices were once, and still are, marginalised, we need to push harder for them to enter our mainstream conversations,” said Gregg.
“There’s no limit to how many stories we can tell, and you know we’re doubly funny when telling them.”
