Our Story

Long before podcasting dominated pop culture, the Founding Team at Glassbox Media built and scaled Giant Media, once the largest Native Video Network in the US per Comscore (2015). Beginning with an early partnership with viral video sensation Dollar Shave Club, the company went on to onboard a wide variety of visionary brand partners including: American Express, Hyundai, Heineken, Capital One, L’Oreal, Johnson & Johnson, and more.

Giant Media was eventually acquired and after a brief period of separation post-acquisition, we decided to “get the band back together” to form Glassbox Media! After launching in January 2021, we have quickly scaled Glassbox’s exclusive podcasts from a few thousand downloads per month to nearly 10M downloads per month across a variety of thematic content genres. Sky's the limit!
