NEW YORKMarch 1, 2023 – Wonder Media Network, a women-founded, mission-driven podcast network, today announced that their original hit podcast “Womanica,” which tells the often untold stories of iconic women across history, will join iHeartPodcasts, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, beginning today. Thinking back to history classes growing up, something was missing: where were the ladies at? Enter, “Womanica.” In just 5 minutes a day, listeners learn about different incredible women from throughout history. 

“For almost four years now, we have published an episode every single weekday about a woman from history we might not know about, but should. These stories are unbelievable, far-reaching, inspiring, terrifying, and never-ending,” said Shira Atkins, co-founder and CRO of Wonder Media Network. “After amassing millions of listeners and many accolades, it’s a thrill to be able to take what was once an indie show with bold reach and even bolder aspirations, and turn it into a cornerstone of women-focused programming with iHeartPodcasts.”

“We’ve been such big fans of Wonder Media Network and the incredible podcasts they’ve produced over the past few years and we’re incredibly excited for this partnership,” said Will Pearson, President of iHeartPodcasts. “Womanica has already built a big and passionate audience and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce these amazing stories to millions of new listeners across our network.”
