LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PodcastOne, a leading podcast platform and a subsidiary of LiveXLive Media (NASDAQ: LIVX), announced today that it will be airing the brand new episode of Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen featuring Stormy Daniels. In their first interaction ever, Daniels unveils her personal feelings about what transpired between her and the former President and the relationship that changed political history.
Cohen served as Donald J. Trump’s attorney and “personal fixer” from 2006 to 2018. He took on tremendous responsibility while representing the former President and at one time even vowing he would take a bullet for him. However, after a brutal feud erupted between them, Cohen ended up biting the bullet and facing serious jail time. In his Audio Up Media produced podcast, Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen, which launched in September of 2020, the darkest elements of Trump’s presidency are revealed, all told by Trump’s former right hand man.
Since joining PodcastOne in January of this year, Mea Culpa has seen its listener base increase by 30%.
Cohen has featured a wide variety of guests, ranging from actors like Ben Stiller and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom Trump had a well-documented history of malevolence, as well as members of federal law enforcement and political scientists and consultants. However, Cohen has never had a guest quite like adult film actress and Trump’s alleged former romantic partner Stormy Daniels.
“Podcasting is the only medium that gives its audience the full story and not just the headlines. Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen is giving us the content that polarized news media censors and this episode with Stormy Daniels is not to be missed,” stated Kit Gray, President, PodcastOne.
In 2016, on Trump’s behalf, Cohen allegedly offered Daniels’ attorney $130,000 to refrain from disclosing information about their alleged affair. In turn, Cohen faced lawsuits, as well as charges including campaign finance violation. This will mark the first time Cohen and Daniels have interacted and now they are on the same side of the Trump coin.
Tune in on Feb. 8 at 9PM PST/ Feb 9 at 12AM ET to hear the exclusive explosion of details surrounding the most controversial U.S. President of all time, as told by two people who knew him better than anyone. You can check out Mea Culpa on any platform that features podcasts, Apple, Spotify, etc especially on LiveXLive’s own PodcastOne and any other platform that features podcasts.
