Joshua T. Rae — Podcaster Relations

How do you do —

I’m Joshua T. Rae. I was born and raised in one of the public radio capitals of the country, Minneapolis — Minnesnowta. I’m a big believer in the power of audio — I’m even studying to receive my amateur radio license. I am thrilled to be joining the RadioPublic team to pursue a mission of helping listeners discover, engage with, and reward creators of stories, podcasts, and other audio.

Prior to RadioPublic, I:

  • Received my first public media merit badge working at Wisconsin Public Television
  • Worked as an AmeriCorps member at the non-profit New York Cares
  • Spread the word about free non-profit tools at Google (just like I’m doing now with RadioPublic — ask me how!)
  • Learned the art of storytelling and how it can manifest action and further critical thought while on the production team at On Being with Krista Tippett
  • Represented brands like Comedy Central, Talenti Gelato, Harley-Davidson, and IFC as a media planner (including planning and purchasing podcast ad buys — I know first-hand the importance of advancing audio marketing and promotions)

In both production and support roles, I’ve had the pleasure of working on multiple sides of the public media, non-profit, and audio industries; now I’m ready to dive ears-first into a role that actively celebrates and elevates podcast creators with meaningful marketing and audience engagement. I’d love to personally connect with all podcast creators, Midwesterners, and fellow Avatar the Last Airbender fans. I hope you’ll reach out, I’m here to help:

A few shows I’m currently digging: ¿Qué Pasa, Midwest?, Terrible, Thanks For Asking, and 36 Questions.
