"The direct relationship between artists and their fans is more important than it’s ever been. Five years from now, people are going to be earning annuities off of podcast content, and Glow is going to help make that happen."

We're creators building for creators

Glow was born out of our CEO’s dream to build a business out of her local news podcast.

In 2017, our CEO Amira created Backyard Cambridge, a podcast about the City Council election in her then-home, Cambridge, Massachusetts. She interviewed the candidates, produced the episodes, and built a small audience. When fans told her she wanted more, she developed a business plan for how to turn Backyard Cambridge into a subscription-based local news service. She took the plunge and started building a local news startup, but then ran into a problem: she didn’t have an easy way for her listeners to pay her for the content.

She had the content, she had the audience, she had the plan. But, she didn’t have the tools to bring her dream to life.

And so, Glow was born.
