Harvard Business Review announced Wednesday the launch of HBR Presents, a podcast network curated by HBR editors.
HBR Presents will feature partner-created podcasts covering business and management topics.
Harvard Business Review is also producing three original podcasts – “HBR IdeaCast,” “Dear HBR:” and “Women at Work” – which together have more than 2 million monthly downloads.
“We know there’s an appetite for even more high-quality audio programming from HBR,” said HBR editor in chief Adi Ignatius in a statement. “HBR Presents is a unique, hyper-focused network of business podcasts that will allow us to reach our audience in different ways – and connect partners and sponsors with HBR’s highly engaged listeners.”
The network has four shows at launch, with the goal of adding up to 10 podcasts annually. The podcasts are “After Hours,” “Cold Call,” “Exponential View with Azeem Azhar” and “FOMO Sapiens with Patrick McGinnis.”
HBR Presents was piloted in October 2018 with one podcast, “After Hours.” Downloads of “After Hours” have grown 700 percent since joining the network.
