Owen Grover

Pocket Casts describes itself as “built by podcast listeners, for podcast listeners” and since May 2018 the company has been led by CEO Owen Grover.  Grover previously spent a dozen years at iHeartMedia.  In an interview with Cheddar earlier this year, Grover said to grow podcasting beyond the well-educated, affluent early-adopter crowd it will need to do more to reflect the diversity of listeners. “As we bring in more diversity of thought and more diversity of voices,  you’re going to see more audience growth from those efforts.”
