What our clients say about us
“As we’ve made plans for a podcast to support Oceans 2050 and our mission to restore our Oceans to abundance by 2050, everyone at Voxtopica has been incredibly supportive. Their planning and messaging guidance has been extremely helpful to our efforts, providing key insights and creative ideas throughout the process. And they are fun to work with”
Alexandra Cousteau President, Oceans 20
“You can’t realize how much work goes into making a podcast until you do it yourself. As work got busier and busier, Voxtopica made it easier for us to do a weekly show despite all the demands of our jobs and lives by streamlining the process and maximizing how we used our time.”
Kristen Soltis Anderson co-host of The Pollsters
“As our show grew and our work responsibilities grew, we started to run out of bandwidth to handle the production in the way our audience deserved. Voxtopica made our audio better and easier and helped strategize ways to improve the content, workflow, and marketing. They would be a great fit for any part of a podcast’s lifecycle.”
Margie Omero co-host of The Pollsters
“We’ve been working with the team at Voxtopica for more than two years to produce our show. Their technical expertise and ongoing recommendations have helped us grow our audience exponentially, while also creating a quality platform for us to communicate critical information to key audiences in real-time, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
