BuzzFeed is partnering with podcast company Acast to debut a new weekly series titled I Know That’s Right.
The new podcast is hosted by HuffPost’s senior culture reporter Taryn Finley, and is presented by HuffPost. Each week, Finley will explore conversations on culture and entertainment that have hit the internet.
“From trending topics to cringe-worthy messes, Taryn and her guests will entertain and enlighten audiences, and keep listeners coming back for more,” says Paul Ricci, head of unscripted for BuzzFeed Studios.
The series furthers BuzzFeed Studio’s existing relationship with Acast, which commenced last year. Acast will distribute the show across all major podcast platforms.
“BuzzFeed and HuffPost have played massive roles in defining the internet culture that we know today,” says Veronika Taylor, senior vice president, Creator Network at Acast. “For years audiences have flocked to them for the latest entertainment news, culture trends, and to find out which 90s sitcom character is their true spirit animal.”
I Know That’s Right will be creating “conversations around those moments and trends for audiences across all listening apps to enjoy,” Taylor adds.
