LOS ANGELES (MAY 9, 2019) – Celebrity paranormal investigator Bridget Marquardt, best known to television audiences and pop-culture connoisseurs as the sweet and brainy star of E! Networks’ wildly popular reality show “The Girls Next Door,” is embarking on an exploration of self-described ghost magnets and the spirits, poltergeists and pookas they attract. What’s it like living with the specters of the dead? Bridget investigates all that and more in her new weekly podcast, “GHOST MAGNET with Bridget Marquardt.”
Marquardt is represented by The Weiss Agency, a preeminent broadcast talent agency, representing a multitude of award-winning local and nationally syndicated radio personalities and producers. The newly launched podcast division, headed by radio and publishing veteran Joe Garner, plans to develop, produce, and distribute podcasts with the agency’s roster of talent as well as third party partnerships with outside talent and producers.
“We are extremely excited to launch The Ghost Magnet as the first offering from TWA Podcast Studio,” says Weiss. “Bridget has a passion for the paranormal that is contagious, and her revelation in episode 1 about the ghosts in the Playboy mansion is a must-hear.”
GHOST MAGNET with Bridget Marquardt is a co-production of TWA Podcast Studio, Marquardt, and Christine Roth and Rob Cohen of Co-Conspiracy Entertainment.
“Ever since my first supernatural experience at a young age, I have always been extremely passionate about the paranormal,” says Marquardt. “The Ghost Magnet podcast is the perfect outlet for me to share my love of paranormal and ghost stories, combined with my degree in communications and background in radio hosting.”
“Bridget brings intelligence, humor and sensitivity to a subject most people either won’t talk about because it freaks them out or because they are afraid they’ll be laughed at,” says Roth. Cohen adds, “She brings just the right amount of skepticism and wonder with a side of paranormal investigative know-how that keeps the listener on the edge of their seat.”
