Entercom, Candance13 Partner For Podcast Series
Entercom and Cadence13, a leading premium podcast company, have announced the launch of “To War and Back,” a RADIO.COM Original podcast series exploring the lives of three combat veterans and their journeys on the battlefield and on their return home. The full six-episode series will launch exclusively on RADIO.COM, the fastest-growing digital audio app in the U.S, on June 10.
“To War and Back”—a collaboration between Entercom and Cadence13 —features journalist and Navy veteran Phil Briggs, host of “Connecting Vets” podcast, traveling cross country to meet three combat veterans—US Marine Corps Sgt. Kirstie Ennis (Ret.), US Marine Corps Major Scott Huesing (Ret.) and US Army veteran Sgt. Boone Cutler—to document their incredible experiences, to war and back.
From cheating death in Iraq and Afghanistan to surviving and fighting the battles they faced when they got home, the lives of these American heroes are inspiring and unforgettable. Briggs also speaks with the three veterans’ friends and family members on “To War and Back,” bringing their firsthand perspective of what it’s like for a loved one to serve to the conversation.
“To War and Back” will launch on June 10, 2019, with all six episodes exclusively available at launch on RADIO.COM. In addition, a new episode will be released weekly everywhere podcasts are available. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: https://app.radio.com/To-War-and-Back.
“From the moment I first heard about Kirstie, Scott and Boone, I knew I wanted to tell their story. As a vet myself, I didn’t want to commercialize their combat, or glorify their scars, but I wanted the world to hear that you can find inspiration, even in desperation,” said Phil Briggs, ConnectingVets.com. “Their stories show what being a combat vet can be like, and it's so much more than what we see in movies and on TV."
“We’re proud to collaborate with our talented partners at Cadence13 on this original series,” said J.D. Crowley, Chief Digital Officer, Entercom. “‘To War and Back’ is a perfect example of the power of audio storytelling to make a difference in the lives of listeners. Original series like this are also a key part of the growth path of RADIO.COM.”
“‘To War and Back’ is an intimate portrait of the human spirit and a tribute to the bravery and perseverance of Boone Cutler, Kirstie Ennis, Scott Huesing and veterans everywhere,” said Spencer Brown, CEO, Cadence13. “We are thrilled to partner with Entercom on the first of what we expect to be a number of RADIO.COM originals.”
