Parcast Union


Parcast believes in podcasting — as a tool to educate, communicate, inspire, and entertain.


We are proud to have joined Spotify and done our part in building the #1 podcasting platform in the world. Today, Parcast shows have surpassed 500 million downloads, have been translated into six languages, and are enjoyed in 40+ countries worldwide.


In four years, we’ve launched 44 shows, produced an unprecedented 2000+ hours of original, scripted content, and we continue to record 30+ hours of brand new material each and every week.

We, the writers, researchers, fact-checkers, hosts, and producers of Parcast, look to the future with optimism and excitement. But to ensure a workplace that remains dedicated to Spotify’s core values — collaboration, innovation, passion, playfulness, and sincerity — we have chosen to unionize with the Writers Guild of America, East.



Through collective bargaining, we hope to achieve growth in the following areas:



Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion:
A sincere commitment to creating a workplace as diverse and inclusive as the stories we tell.


Workload & Overtime:
A reasonable workload that leaves time for playfulness and innovation.


Transparency & Compensation:
Clear job descriptions, equitable compensation, transparent salary bands, and collaborative decision-making.


Creativity & Intellectual Property:
An environment where the ideas and voices of our passionate creators are valued and respected.


We ask that Spotify recognize our union so that we might begin negotiating a contract. We have 92% participation among our departments and are prepared to elect a bargaining team.


From a single-room office in Woodland Hills to six recording studios in DTLA, telling stories to millions of people around the world, we know that anything is possible together.
