About

pushkin

We started our company with a few simple precepts. We would put artists and creators first. We would produce work that we care about and believe in. And we would have fun.

JACOB WEISBERG
CEO & Co-Founder

Pushkin Industries is an audio production company co-founded by Jacob Weisberg and Malcolm Gladwell in 2018. Alexander Pushkin, the Russian Romantic writer, is our inspiration. Pushkin was a hybrid, a mix of Russian, African, and French ancestry — as well as a philosopher, poet, playwright, and novelist. Like him, our company is curious about everything and always wants to try something new. Diversity is at the heart of our culture, alongside intellectual openness, respect, fairness, and ethical behavior.

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