Independent Book Publisher Pinter & Martin Announces New Partnership With Parenting Podcast Sprogcast

London based publisher Pinter & Martin, who specialises in pregnancy, birth and parenting titles, has joined forces with Sprogcast, a popular parenting podcast, in a new sponsorship arrangement. Aligning their mutual aims and audience, Pinter & Martin and Sprogcast intend to expand distribution of the informative and entertaining monthly podcast, continuing to build on their established listenership. 

Sprogcast was co-founded in 2015 by presenters Karen Hall, a doula and parenting support specialist, and Mark Harris, midwife of twenty years and founder of Birthing For Blokes. The podcast will remain editorially independent and will release a new one hour programme on the 25th of every month featuring topical childbirth and parenting issues and guest interviews.  Pinter & Martin and Sprogcast plan to broaden the podcast audience to include a mainstream listenership of parents alongside their current audience of midwives and birthcare professionals.

Sprogcast is available via iTunes and SoundCloud. The complete back catalogue of programmes will be available on a new dedicated page at

Martin Wagner, Managing Director, Pinter & Martin says, ‘As soon as I listened to the first episode of Sprogcast, I felt that it would be a perfect fit with Pinter & Martin as we share Karen and Mark’s passion in making evidence-based information understandable and accessible to many. We hope our partnership helps Sprogcast to reach the wide audience it deserves.’

Karen Hall, co-founder and presenter of Sprogcast says, ‘I'm excited to work in partnership with Pinter & Martin, whose books I have been enjoying for years. I'm hoping that with them, we can expand our listener base and be the name that people think of when they want something that's both entertaining and informative.’

Fantastic! Making evidence based information accessible is key. It's hard to navigate your way through the minefield of information so finding new mediums to do this is great! :-)
