Laura Mayer

Executive Producer, Podcast Programming (Shameless Acquisition Target),
ABC News
New York,

There’s no record book for this sort of thing, but if there were, Laura would be a contender for the person who has created and launched more successful shows than anyone in Big Podcasting.

Laura is currently the Executive Producer of Podcast Programming at ABC News. Previously, she created and hosted the critically acclaimed podcast “Shameless Acquisition Target,” which will soon be a book released by HarperCollins. Before that, she co-founded the production company Three Uncanny Four (prod. The Just Enough Family with Ariel Levy, Bad Blood: The Final Chapter with John Carreyrou). She was head of development at Stitcher (co-created and EP’d the first season of The Dream with Jane Marie). She was employee number one at Panoply, a podcast network from Slate Magazine, where she was the founding producer and EP for Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, The Message from GE Podcast Theater, and many more.
