My name is Jeff Umbro. I own a podcast company called the Podglomerate. We produce, distribute, and monetize podcasts. Our shows have been featured on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Castbox, Pocketcasts, NPR One, TuneIn and every other major podcast app. The New York Times, Forbes, Variety, Vulture, The AV Club, Den of Geek, Paste, Splitsider, Salon, Geek & Sundry, Blavity, Fortune, Inc., Book Riot, USA Today, and more ave written about the podcasts we’ve produced. If you have any interest in learning more, advertising, or even creating a show, send me an email here.
I also help people promote things on the Internet through writing, marketing and social media. Currently I’m working on a few projects split between tech, writing and podcasting. Send me an email for more info.
I’m recently back from a few months in San Francisco where I helped to register voters for the 2016 election through VotePlz, a non-profit non-partisan registration initiative cofounded by Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator. I’m coming off a five year stint working as the Director of Digital Marketing at Goldberg McDuffie Communications, helping authors promote their books on the Internet. Before that, I worked as a Product Manager at Appsolute Media, as an SEO Specialist for Blue Core Studios, and as a bookseller for Water Street Bookstore in Exeter, New Hampshire. I was/am also a consultant for Product Hunt, Talkshow, Koko, Serial Box, and others where I help grow audiences. There were also some really cool and random things in between.
For fun I host a podcast with my friend Kyle. It’s called Writers Who Don’t Write and we interview authors, journalists, editors and comedians on the one story they’ve struggled to tell. We have a newsletter and a blog associated, and I’m pretty proud of some of the pieces we’ve written and edited.
I also write about podcasts for the Daily Dot.
I graduated from Ithaca College in May of 2010 with a B.A. in Writing and a minor in English. I’m based in New York City.
If you want to get in touch, please tweet me or email me. There are a lot of other ways to find me, but you’ll have to use your imagination.
