Insider Podcast, investigative & fiction podcasts

Insider Podcast is the first investigative and fiction podcast production company in France. It was created in 2019 by Adele Humbert and Emilie Denetre.

We investigate and narrate long-form non-fiction and fiction stories over multiple episodes in French and in English.

Our financing plan is transparent: each investigation is sponsored by one or several selected sponsors with no collusion with the story.

If you are interested in creating your own podcast, let’s work together. We also offer to bring our expertise in developing podcast concepts and co-productions with other media outlets.
