The podcast reviews documentary series and films every week.
The Irish podcast, Docs That Rock, co-hosted by Cherida D'Arcy and Tracey Ferguson has been signed to the Big Heads Media network in the US.
Docs That Rock discusses new documentary films and series on a weekly basis and made its debut less than a year ago.
Co-owner of Michigan Sports and Entertainment Network - who operate Big Heads Media -, Mark Phillips said the company "are overjoyed to add Docs That Rock to our roster of podcasts".
"Cherida and Tracey do a show that is of the highest quality and is enjoyed by so many people. I, personally, listen to the podcast every week. Most importantly, however, Cherida and Tracey are wonderful people and my co-owner, Dan, and myself believe in investing in and empowering fantastic people." he continues.
The podcast is currently on iTunes, Soundcloud and other networks but will now be available on the popular streaming service Spotify.
“We started this podcast because we are passionate about documentaries and found ourselves talking about them each time we met, so we thought we may as well do a podcast about it," says co-host Cherida D'Arcy. "We were delighted to have been approached by Mark Phillips and Dan Murphy of Big Heads Media and look forward to moving ahead with their podcast network."
Although based in Galway, the podcast has garnered a strong following overseas in the US and the move to the network will allow them to tap into a much wider audience.
Co-host Tracey Flanagan says: "We are excited to join the Big Heads Media family and are particularly thrilled to be the network’s first Irish podcast and only their second international podcast signing outside of the U.S."
Although documentaries are typically quite niche, Flanagan says with the "increase in film production and exposure via Netflix and Amazon", the medium becoming more and more popular.
