PodX Group is a Sweden-based, private-equity-backed firm looking to acquire majority stakes in independent podcast production companies around the world. I’ve been hearing whispers about them, so I took a closer look and chatted with co-founder and executive director Patrick Svensk to hear what they’ve been up to since they announced their existence in April.
