Frontier Tween is a scripted podcast featuring the life of Tilly Mulch on the untamed prairie; Smartr is a look at the tech world with VC Noa Lukas, as he helps companies grow. A Variety article announcing the deal, claiming that Conan O'Brien is driving the podcast revolution, has come into quite some snarky criticism online, with people claiming that Conan turned up ten years late.

(<-- weak podcast joke) Podcast episodes within Google Search are now appearing again in Australia and the UK, and also in France, Germany and Sweden.

The company responsible is GrandArmy. The team behind The Fantasy Footballers are working with US satellite radio broadcaster SiriusXM. A new live show featuring the hosts will go to air every Thursday on the Fantasy Sports Radio channel, and the podcast, which remains independent, will also be aired weeknights.

Crime Junkie episodes disappear after plagiarism claim
Visit https://podnews.net/update/cr-me-jun-ie for all the links, and to subscribe. Crime Junkie has pulled five episodes, apparently after the show was accused of plagarism. Sources have, belatedly, been added to the show-notes of other episodes. Quoted in Variety, creator and host Ashley Flowers says, in part: "We are committed to working within the burgeoning podcast industry to develop and evolve its standards on these kinds of issues." The latest episode makes no mention of the issue. Meanwhile, a post in the Crime Junkie Reddit group makes accusations of suspicious reviews that appear duplicated, perhaps bought. Podcast Movement is doubling in size next year. The team have announced that Podcast Movement 2020 will be in Dallas TX next August, while a new event, Podcast Movement Evolutions, will be in February in Los Angeles CA.
