Podium is a leading digital-first publisher whose mission is to change the lives of trendsetting storytellers by discovering, developing, and amplifying their work.

Podium leverages proprietary technology to identify these groundbreaking storytellers and, with a creator-economy mentality, brings forth industry-leading production capabilities focused on quality, as well as a deep digital expertise in distribution and overall monetization. Podium’s partnership with both authors and narrators sits at the center of this process. Furthering our commitment to storytelling and diverse voices, Podium launched AudioCollab in 2021, an innovative venture dedicated to elevating the most sought-after voices working in the industry today.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Podium is the fastest growing digital publisher in North America. With a focus on genre fiction, Podium has become a leader in Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Romance, and has been a pioneer in bringing the popular sub-genres of Gamelit, LitRPG, Progression Fantasy, and more to the fore. Podium first gained international notice for turning author Andy Weir’s The Martian into one of the most successful audiobooks in history. Today, the company is a top-ten audiobook publisher and has expanded into publishing in ebook and print. Podium’s expansive growth has continued internationally through a partnership with European publisher Saga Egmont to translate and produce our top IP in myriad non-English languages. With a data-focused mindset, Podium recently acquired industry leading analytic and subscription service Bookstat. Bookstat is the only real-time platform tracking online sales of physical books, ebooks, and audiobooks.

Work with Podium

We are thrilled to be partnered with some of the top creators in modern storytelling.

Independent publishing is core to the DNA of our company: while we do consider submissions from literary agents and managers, we’re proud that the vast majority of our title acquisitions are independently published by extraordinarily talented authors through Amazon, and also through serialized fiction platforms like Royal Road, Patreon, Wattpad, and more. We are looking to partner with authors who are building fan communities and reaching new audiences.

Therefore, if you are new to us and would like to have your story considered for publication by Podium, we recommend that you send us links to your available work and any of your social channels.

Similarly, we also enthusiastically partner with voice actors and leading narrators. We’re always looking for new, professional audiobook performers: if you’d like to submit a link to your website, social channels or sample page, please do so through the narrator form below.
