About

Pushkin Industries was started with a few simple precepts. Put artists and creators first. Produce work that we believe in. And, have fun.

Pushkin Industries is an audio production company co-founded by Jacob Weisberg and Malcolm Gladwell in 2018. Our talented team is dedicated to producing audio in any format that challenges listeners, encourages their curiosity, and inspires joy.

Pushkin Industries is headquartered in New York City with a northern outpost in Hudson, NY, and satellite offices in London, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Editorial Principles

Pushkin Industries is expanding the possibilities of spoken word audio. We produce podcasts, audiobooks and other projects that inform, entertain, and inspire listeners. Our work is built on principles of trust: respect and fairness, accuracy, accountability, and honesty. We understand that crucial to earning and nurturing trust is a workplace that values creativity, diversity and open communication.

Our work at Pushkin Industries is distinguished by its editorial process, and our producers and editors follow internal guidelines for ethical best practices. We strive for accuracy in reporting and storytelling. We seek out multiple viewpoints on complex issues. To ensure our standards are met, our content undergoes thorough editorial review prior to publication.

We aim to produce well-rounded stories that reflect the true complexity of the world we live in. We believe accountability to our staff and audiences makes our work better. We recognize our ethical responsibility to correct factual errors, large and small, and we are transparent about those corrections. We credit the work of others, avoid conflicts of interest, and make clear the funding sources of our work.

Our values of respect and fairness extend to the multiplicity of listeners and readers, including those with varying cultural backgrounds, who encounter our work. We approach our work in the spirit of transparency, safety, and humanity.
