Products we offer include:

Sponsored Podcasts

The Weekly Show: 8K – 15K downloads per episode: Our most popular product, the Weekly Show is recorded with you using an outline built ahead of time to cover your agenda. We’ll use the same highly technical, conversational format our audience appreciates while discussing your company and product.

Note: Up to 50% of our Weekly Shows can be sponsored, the remainder offer independent content only

Priority Queue: 5K – 11K downloads per episode: Priority Queue is a separate channel where we publish more specialized technical content. Expect to relate complex technical details about your product to our savvy audience of networking professionals. Unlike the Weekly Show, which is published on Fridays, Priority Queue is published on a content-available basis.

Datanauts: Average downloads per episode 7K: Hosted by Chris Wahl and Ethan Banks, the Datanauts Podcast explores the world of enterprise data centers and the cloud, and busts silos across compute, network, storage, and development.

Note: Up to 50% of the Datanauts Podcast can be sponsored, the remainder offer independent content only

Risky Business Podcast: 30k – 35k episodes downloaded monthly.
The Risky Business podcast was launched in 2007 by award-winning Australian information security journalist Patrick Gray.

Published weekly, the podcast runs for approximately an hour per episode and features industry news and commentary from security luminaries. The podcast’s target audience is tech-minded managers and executives who are short on time and rely on a weekly audio digest to give them a briefing on the latest industry news and trends. Risky Business scours the news feeds so they don’t have to.

Guest Blog Post

The Packet Pushers website features a well-read community blog where network engineers submit technical, opinion, and personal experience articles. We accept a limited number of sponsored blog posts where a vendor can share a technical, audience appropriate, and mutually agreed upon topic with the community.

Conference Coverage

Packet Pushers can amplify your conference or trade show by helping to market the event, attending in person, recording your latest news, engaging your subject matter experts, and publishing content captured at your event to our feeds.

In this engagement, Packet Pushers will assist in creating the topics and show structure, and will provide recording equipment at the event. You’ll provide us with your experts and a quiet place to record. We will edit and publish the recorded content into our channels, using a mix of primary and secondary feeds — usually two primary, and up to six secondary.
