The popular podcast ‘Confessions of a trainwreck’ hosted by ex-Nova announcer Phoebe Parsons has jumped ship and moved over to Jay Walkerden and Katie Mattin’s podcast company Podshape.
Jay Walkerden signed Parsons to Nova almost four years ago as part of the winner of a podcast talent quest.
The show has had over 175 episodes across the four years and has had almost two million downloads since it began.
It has amassed a very loyal following across 18–35-year-old women in Australia, has performed at the Melbourne comedy festival and various live recordings of the podcast across Australia.
On moving over to Podshape, Parsons said, “I pretty much owe my career to Jay as he gave me my first big break in the industry and was the first person to take a chance on a tragic little train wreck. I’m excited to join Podshape and wait for my next big break – just kidding (no I’m not).”
Jay Walkerden, Head Shaper at Podshape said, “ever since we started working together 4 years ago, I was impressed with Phoebe’s raw talent and her energy.”
“Over the past four years she has built a strong brand and loyal following with her podcast and socials and we are keen to continue that growth with her.”
‘Confessions of a Trainwreck – 30, Flirty and Surviving’ has undergone a logo change and a tweak of the format which will include Parsons releasing shows each week on ‘Trainwreck Tuesdays’ and ‘DM Fridays’ and each show will continue to focus on relationships, health & fitness, money and career.
The first episode with Podshape will be released across all platforms.
