Revolt Adds Eight Podcasts To Its Network With Focus On Female-Led Shows.

Revolt – the music-focused television network founded by Sean "Diddy" Combs and radio and record industry veteran Andy Schuon nearly a decade ago – launched the Revolt Podcast Network last summer. Based on its success to date, Revolt says they will expand their network targeting Black listeners with the release of eight new shows with a range of women-led podcasts that cover everything from sports, mental wellness, entrepreneurship, and music.

In an announcement about the new additions, Revolt says its 2023 podcast class aims to provide “unique perspectives and valuable insights for Revolt’s modern audience,” while representing the company's commitment to expand globally and throughout the entire Black diaspora, including new shows hosted by well-known creators in South Africa and The Caribbean. It says each of the new shows aims to empower viewers to succeed in all aspects of their lives.

"Revolt is committed to providing a platform for the most impactful voices in the world to have the important conversations that matter to our audience and these shows are a strong testament to that," CEO Detavio Samuels said in a statement. "We're introducing a slate of new podcasts anchored by dynamic and powerful Black women, including international shows that reflect our culture across the diaspora, so we're excited for listeners to tune in and be inspired."

The new shows include—

  • The Double Dose Podcast: A show hosted by two dynamic Black women, Chanda & Chanelle Reynolds, who share their perspectives on pop culture, politics, and more.

  • The Success Playbook Podcast: Hosted by sports executive and bestselling author Chanelle S. Reynolds, this show offers helpful tips and insights on achieving success.

  • Paging Dr. Chanda: Hosted by licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Chanda, this show is a wellness conversation hub for rising generations, discussing topics such as mental health and faith.

  • The Hustlers Corner Podcast with DJ Sbu: Hosted by DJ Sbu, Farai Gundan, and Penuel, this show features interviews with entrepreneurs, innovators, and rising stars from across Africa and the diaspora.

  • Reasonings with Odessa: This series covers all things Jamaican, Caribbean and African Pop Culture through the eyes of taste maker and media personality Odessa Chambers. Known for being blunt, fun, and quirky, Odessa unveils a real insight into her guests by asking the questions audiences always wanted to know about.

  • Holdin' Court Podcast: Sit down with film producer and music executive Big Court and music industry executive Ken Schoech, or "Producer Ken," who are joined by some of the hottest names in entertainment to discuss the rap game, the streets, music, TV, film, pop culture and more.

  • Women in Hip Hop: Host Jazzie Belle discusses the many influences of women in Hip Hop and sits down with industry insiders on the behind-the-scenes dealings on what it's like being a boss queen in a male dominated industry.

  • Music is the Love Language: Comedian Clint Coley, known for his comedy and thoughts on relationships, taps into his number one love language – music – on this show.

The additions bring the Revolt Podcast Network to more than three dozen shows. Since it launched last August, the company says the network has seen significant growth. Its biggest new hit is likely Caresha Please, a talk show hosted by Caresha Brownlee, better known as Yung Miami, the show features conversations about hip-hop culture.

"The Revolt Podcast Network is an important part of our content strategy, and we're excited to see it continue to grow," said Aki Garrett, VP/General Manager of the Revolt Podcast Network. "Our team has worked hard to curate a lineup that reflects our commitment to showcasing Black women and Black culture on a global scale. We're excited to share these shows with our community and hope they educate, empower and entertain our audience."
