Emily Morse, who has been a guest host on the syndicated radio show “Loveline” and hosted a show on SiriusXM until earlier this year, is doubling down on her Sex with Emily podcast. Morse has just signed a distribution and monetization deal with Acast as she aims to grow her listeners internationally.
“I’m so excited to partner with Acast, a true leader in the industry,” said Morse in the announcement. “Tapping into their innovative technology and expert team will allow the Sex with Emily brand to continue on our strong growth trajectory. Acast’s proven success in the global marketplace tees them up to be the perfect partner for Sex with Emily to achieve its mission of expanding reach to effectively liberate the conversation around sex worldwide.”
The Sex with Emily podcast launched in Morse’s San Francisco living room in 2005 and has become one of the longest-running sex and relationship podcasts. It covers a spectrum of topics related to sexual health and wellness, attracting listeners of all genders and age groups. She answers their questions phoned into the podcast’s hotline. Morse, who also hosted and executive produced the “Sex with Emily” radio show on SiriusXM from 2018 to 2021, will now exclusively focus her efforts on the podcast series.
“Emily is an icon in the world of podcasts – an early adopter who turned her passion for sex education into a sustainable business that educates and inspires people every day,” said Rebecca Steinberg, Director of Development at Acast. “What Emily has created is a safe space for people to explore topics that are intimate and personal — and we're so thrilled to be able to bring her important conversations to audiences all around the world, on every platform.”
Morse is represented by UTA, who negotiated the deal on her behalf.
