Acast, the world’s leading independent podcast company, today announces a multi-year extension of its partnership with British podcast Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. Hosts Chris and Rosie Ramsey have captured the hearts and ears of podcast listeners everywhere with their podcast about married life, parenting and everything in between. Produced by Avalon, who also represent Chris and Rosie Ramsey, Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. will continue as part of the Acast Creator Network, with Acast hosting, distributing, monetizing and growing the show globally.

Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. has released 150 episodes, alongside a record-breaking live arena tour (selling out London’s O2 Arena and Wembley SSE Arena in London alone), and a Sunday Times No.1 best-selling book — while hosts Chris and Rosie have secured an upcoming TV show with the BBC. The podcast is full of relatable stories about their relationship and family life, and its popularity has resulted in more than 93 million episode downloads to date.

As part of the Acast Creator Network, Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. is supported by Acast’s range of monetization and growth options — which include premium ad products available exclusively via the Acast Marketplace, such as sponsorship and branded content, and direct listener support through Acast+ subscriptions.

Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. will also continue to benefit from Acast’s commitment to open podcasting, ensuring the podcast remains available across all podcast listening platforms, and bringing the show to new audiences across the globe.

Chris and Rosie said: ”We love working with Acast. The podcast has turned our life upside down and has given us a platform to share our relationship and our stories with millions of people - which, perhaps surprisingly, we still think is a good idea. We can’t wait to continue collaborating with Acast and reaching podcast listeners around the world, thanks to its support for open podcasting.”

Veronika Taylor, SVP of Acast Creator Network said: “Sh**ged.Married.Annoyed. is a podcast with millions of fans — you just have to look at their UK-wide tour and sell-out live shows at Wembley Arena and the O2 to see how much people love this podcast and everything that goes along with it. When we speak to new creators, advertisers and audiences, this show is consistently named as a firm favorite — but we know there’s much more we can do together, and we’re looking forward to building on their incredible success.” 

Richard Allen Turner, Executive Producer at Avalon said: “Acast have been an excellent partner on this exciting journey for the show, and we’re all delighted to be continuing the relationship with their talented team into the future.”
