Podcast giant Marc Maron joins Acast
Premiering on March 8, 2022, the long-awaited Season 3 builds on the acclaimed programming of the series’ first two seasons and will give real estate buyers, sellers, investors, and interested listeners access to the coveted expertise of McGillivray and his guests.
Season 3 will cover topics like how to invest in a hot real estate market, how social media is changing the real estate landscape, and lessons Scott has learned from being a landlord for over 20 years. It will also feature guests including The Property Brothers and designer Jane Lockhart. Through the new partnership, Acast will host, distribute, and monetize the podcast, allowing it to reach new audiences and giving brands the rare opportunity to partner with the beloved public figure.
One of the most prolific experts in real estate, McGillivray has empowered countless hard-working Canadians and Americans to reach their full potential, helping them take control of their financial livelihoods and generate income on their terms through smart investment options, renovation techniques, and development choices.
He’s a household name appearing on HGTV in Canada, Discovery Inc.’s DIY Network in the US, and other wide-reaching outlets, starring in TV series including Scott’s Own Vacation House, premiering March 14, 2022; Scott’s Vacation House Rules, returning May 16, 2022; Renovation Resort, premiering Spring 2023; and many more. An accomplished writer, public speaker, and teacher, McGillivray will continue to inspire homeowners and bring his expertise to life through his podcast with the help of the Acast team.
“Real estate education is a passion of mine, and with my podcast, it was important to share my knowledge and experience with listeners, regardless of their level of experience. Whether you’re a seasoned investor, a new homeowner, or looking to break into the market, I try and include relevant content for everyone,” said McGillivray, host of The Real Estate Rebel, who is CEO of McGillivray Group and McGillivray Entertainment, and co-founder of real estate investing education company Keyspire.
“Partnering with Acast was a no-brainer because they share that same mission of accessibility, ensuring the Canadian podcasting community can distribute their podcasts to listeners everywhere, on all platforms. I hope fans enjoy all the surprises and insider info we have in store for them on Season 3 of The Real Estate Rebel.”
As part of Acast’s commitment to the open podcast ecosystem, the company will make The Real Estate Rebel available widely around the globe and allow listeners to access it on all podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, Samsung Free, and more.
Heather Gordon, Managing Director, Canada, at Acast, said: “A media titan, Scott has built up a massive and loyal following through his approachable and kind-hearted nature, his willingness to help others better themselves and, most importantly, by earning people’s trust. Acast Canada looks forward to bringing his podcast to audiences across every platform out there and offering brands an opportunity to reach a hyper-engaged community of listeners by partnering with an industry legend.”
