Spotify is adding to its offering of exclusive podcasts.
The music streaming service will announce Thursday three new podcasts that all look at a different facet of the music industry, from TV's top music moments to the career of hip-hop executive Chris Lighty, who died in 2012. The new shows represent a larger push into the podcasting world for Spotify, which first began carrying the format in 2015 and has since experimented with original podcasts such as Mic-produced Clarify.
First up among the new series is Showstopper, which premieres Feb. 23 and is produced in partnership with Slate's Panoply Studios. Hosted by The Fader editor-in-chief Naomi Zeichner, the series look at the impact of music on television through interviews with the music supervisors for Girls, Stranger Things, Being Mary Jane, The O.C. and others.
