MTV Launching Lots of Podcasts and Cribs Is Coming Back


MTV has been doing some re-tooling. The latest announcements are that they’ll be bringing back “MTV Cribs” … on Snapchat … and that they have joined the podcasting game in a big way:

The podcasts will record in both New York and Los Angeles, and will be available via iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud. More podcasts will be announced at a later date. They include: “Skillset with Amy Nicholson.” a film podcast featuring the critic in the title; “No Requests Live,” a weekly music and pop culture roundtable; “The Stakes,” a weekly political magazine; “North Mollywood,” featuring Molly Lambert and Alex Pappademas offering the California view of pop culture; and “Speed Dial with Ira & Doreen,” in which Ira Madison III and Doreen St. Felix host a bi-coastal program that tackles music, pop culture, sex and race.

So far, I’ve gotta say I’ve been really impressed with what they’ve put together. I still find their website to be an abomination, but the content and writing has been top notch.
