Eddie Ravert – Rose Buds: The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever
Eddie Ravert was itching to get back behind the microphone, but how? He had a very successful PR career and wasn’t too sure about jumping back into the radio industry. Then one day, while watching his favorite guilty pleasure TV show, a light bulb went off. Why not start a podcast about the hit ABC reality TV shows “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” And it made perfect sense to Eddie. Nearly 8 million people tune into “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” every Monday night, so the captive audience was built into his plan. Given the viewing audience of this reality dating show was about 90 percent female, Eddie knew he needed an influential female voice, and there was only one person for that job- his sister.
Eddie & Lynn started off with one USB microphone on her kitchen table simply doing recaps on recent episodes of “The Bachelor.” After five episodes and about 500 downloads, Eddie realized this could really take off. So they invested in more advanced podcasting equipment and software and really went for it. They started interviewing uber popular contestants from the show weekly. Word was starting to spread about this brother-sister duo from Philadelphia. Contestants started talking to each other saying how much fun they had on the Rose Buds podcast. But most importantly, these reality TV stars were sharing links to their episodes with their massive social media following (side note: the Instagram story “swipe up” function has been the biggest factor in the podcast’s growth). Now, Rose Buds was really starting to take off.
But Eddie & Lynn wanted more. They started uncovering and breaking news about “The Bachelor” franchise the show wasn’t airing. This lead to them being covered in numerous major media outlets for countless stories including People, E!, US Weekly, The Inquisitr, Refinery 29, and much more. After cracking the iTunes top 75 charts and garnering thousands of downloads per weekly episode, Rose Buds Nation was growing at an alarming rate. For a little, independent podcast competing with the major Bachelor Nation podcasts from all the major broadcast companies, you could say Rose Buds was disruptive.
Most recently, Eddie & Lynn organized and performed a live Bachelor-themed trivia night at Punch Line Comedy Club in Philadelphia in front of a packed and engaged crowd. They also record weekly Facebook Live recap shows with local Philadelphia radio station Today’s 96.5, reaching thousands of viewers. The future is bright for Rose Buds, as they continue to grow, interview top-tier contestants and uncover scoops no other Bachelor-themed podcast could even fathom. From fan-favorite segments like “One Word, One Answer” to “Date Card Dilemma” to listener voicemails and Instagram contests, the listeners are just as part of the show as Eddie & Lynn are. So, if you are a fan of The Bachelor (or know anyone how loves this show as much as Eddie & Lynn) then please tell them to subscribe, leave a review… (you know the deal :)).
