Our Story

From a small studio in Provo, to the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, LPM has been a work of passion, constant improvement, and change. Thanks to the people around us, including our family, friends, mentors, partners, and clients. 

At the roots of LPM you’ll find people who are truly passionate about what they do in podcasting because that’s how we started out—as podcast hosts ourselves. Each one of us has sat behind the microphone and pushed to make 'something that we can be proud of' which stands as our motto.

Now this little piece of the universe, our company, has grown to be one of the largest podcast agencies in the United States alongside being more of the most successful. Rising to become top podcast company in search, data, analytics, research, production, and strategy.

We’re proud to say that the horizon looks bright for LPM. We’ve come a long way since recording in the that little studio…and we’re not stopping until we’re the top podcast data and analytics agency in the world.

To all of the people who have made LaunchPod Media what it is,

Thank you
