Our Story

We love podcasts and we want podcasters to succeed by earning income with their shows. We do this by matching them with great advertisers who understand the unique benefits offered by podcast ads.

Midroll was born from the recognition that great hosts thrive when they can focus on their shows, and advertisers benefit when they can work with a professional sales team. We started with the top-notch shows on the Earwolf network, and quickly grew from there.
