Meet Jeff Henson of The Gonzo Podcasts Network in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeff Henson.

Jeff, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
We started The Gonzo Podcasts Network in 2017 as we saw a special niche open in the podcasting network world. There were several celebrities and reality star personalities who wanted to have their voices heard and we wanted to be that place. We quickly went from two, one-hour shows per week to 25 live shows. The shows covered celebrities from Howard Stern’s Whack Pack, Teen Mom, Mama June, Andy Dick, Tim Sylvia and other reality stars.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been a smooth road at all! First learning all of the technicalities is tough. There are so many aspects when it comes to podcasting, from the audio to the video, to the internet speed, and bitrates your pushing out. Additionally, dealing with the streaming platforms and their guidelines isn’t easy either.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Gonzo Podcasts Network – what should we know?
The Gonzo Podcasts Network specializes in hosting interactive podcasts or vodcasts with celebrities and other personalities, which enables the fans to listen to and interact with stars that they normally wouldn’t. The audience can call into the show, chat into the show or even come on video, all while listening, sharing the broadcast and donating money to the network.

We are most proud of building the network from nothing to specializing in the industry and being mentioned on across many media websites, such as TMZ and Radar Online. Our discovery of technology and quick implementation sets us apart from our competitors.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
The Gonzo Podcasts Network is in a good position as the traditional radio will be making it’s shift from the airwaves to streaming at the timely request of its listeners.

The network is also available on 17 different platforms, has an app, and is constantly looking into new opportunities to reach fans.
