The Hubhoper Original program was first launched in December 2018 in the light of promoting the best of Indian podcasts and ensuring the podcast gets the right exposure & support to push it deserves.
In the program, both Hubhopper & the creator work together to build the podcast to a position where the podcast as a brand is able to attract potential monetisation opportunities. With Hubhopper’s support, creators are able to focus on content creation while the Hubhopper team focuses on channel optimisation for the podcast.
Some of our original podcasts include the likes of ‘Paranormal Reality’ which so far was able to gather over ‘3.5 million listens’ and was able to close sponsorship deals from the likes of ‘MyChoize Self Drive Cars’ & ‘Gaana’. This further propelled the podcast brand to launch its very own TV show & as well as publish a book with Penguin Random House!
‘The CricketNews.Com Podcast’ hosted by Sumedhh Bilgi is another Hubhopper Original show that made news with its phenomenal growth during Season 1 in 2020 and recently bagged a sponsorship by GoodGamer!
