Audacy Signs Multi-year Contract Extension for Glennon Doyle, Abby Wambach, and Amanda Doyle’s “We Can Do Hard Things"
Select Episodes of the Award-Winning, Chart-Topping Show Will Drop Early on the Audacy App as New Cover Art is Unveiled
PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 2, 2023 – Audacy today announced that it has signed a multi-year contract extension for Glennon Doyle, her wife Abby Wambach, and her sister Amanda Doyle’s acclaimed, chart-topping podcast We Can Do Hard Things.
At the same time, the show is rebranding and unveiling new art on November 2, 2023. The new cover features Abby and Amanda alongside Glennon for the first time. Amanda Doyle has been part of the show since it launched in May 2021. Wambach initially sat in as a guest, began to make regular appearances, and soon joined the sisters as a permanent co-host.
New episodes of “We Can Do Hard Things” are released on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the Audacy app and everywhere podcasts are available. As part of the new agreement, select episodes will drop early exclusively on the Audacy app.
“We Can Do Hard Things” debuted at #1 at launch and was named the #1 Top New Show on Apple Podcasts in 2021. It has routinely charted in the top 20 overall–and top ten in the Society & Culture category–ever since. The show garners millions of listeners each week, an extraordinarily engaged community dubbed the “Pod Squad.”
“We’re very proud of the purposeful and powerful conversations, connections, and community we’ve built with our incredible Pod Squad of listeners across the country and the empowering journey we’re on together on ‘We Can Do Hard Things,’ said Glennon Doyle, Abby Wambach, and Amanda Doyle. “Audacy has been a wonderful and invaluable partner whose support helps us bring our mission and vision to life on every episode, and we look forward to continued impact and connection.”
“Glennon, Abby, and Amanda are nothing short of a phenomenon–their heart, empathy, candor, and willingness to be vulnerable and share their deepest personal experiences have resonated and created a bond with millions of listeners around the world,” said Jenna Weiss-Berman, EVP, Podcasts, Audacy. “They’re an incredibly important part of the Audacy family. As we look to 2024 and beyond, we’re excited to take ‘We Can Do Hard Things’ to the next level, nurturing the growth of the Pod Squad and working with our existing and new advertising partners to create meaningful, high-impact engagements with this dedicated community.”
On “We Can Do Hard Things,” Doyle, Wambach, and Amanda Doyle do the only thing they’ve found that has ever made life easier: Drop the fake and talk honestly about the hard things including sex, gender, parenting, blended families, bodies, anxiety, addiction, justice, boundaries, fun, quitting, overwhelm . . . all of it.
Guests who have discussed their hard things on the show include Vice President Kamala Harris, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Tracee Ellis Ross, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, Tarana Burke, Megan Rapinoe, Shannon Watts, Ashley C. Ford, Dr. Brené Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Billie Jean King, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Paulson, and many more.
Glennon, Abby, and Amanda are slated to welcome a wide range of new and returning guests throughout the fall and winter of 2023-2024, including Dolly Parton, Alanis Morissette, Laverne Cox, Roxane Gay, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Becky Kennedy, and ALOK.
Doyle shared the news of her anorexia diagnosis in a raw and searing episode in early 2023. On the November 2, 2023 show, she is revisiting her diagnosis and diving into her recovery journey. Other upcoming shows cover Amanda’s struggle to get free from burnout and resentment, and Abby’s work in therapy to get comfortable feeling and expressing anger.
Glennon Doyle and Abby Wambach are repped by WME.
