Harlow

& Co. 

Join the Conversation

 

Harlow & Co. is a boutique podcast consultancy and production company led by Frances Harlow and backed by a network of the industry's top editors, engineers, sound designers, producers, and host talent.

 

We specialize in partnering with brands, agencies, publishers, and production companies to develop podcasts and other highly edited, sound-rich narrative audio that resonates with listeners far more effectively than traditional advertising. Because nobody wants to listen to a 30-minute commercial.

Our Philosophy, Your Team

IMG_1721 2.JPG

I’m Frances. I founded Harlow & Co. because I believe that every production presents a unique puzzle: how do we leverage the intimacy of audio to strengthen your brand message and reach your audience in a deeper, more meaningful way?

 

After nearly a decade working in public radio, recording and engineering audiobooks, and developing branded podcasts at Gimlet Media, I’ve found that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s where the “& Co.” comes in.

 

While we do offer full-service production capabilities, many of our clients come to us because they want a more tailored, hands-on experience. As a consultant, my top priority is meeting you where you are in order to provide the most value to you — whether that’s launching an original series, staffing an audio department of your own, or leveling up an existing show.

 

We’ll start by creating a custom audio strategy designed to meet your brand’s goals and optimize your existing resources. Once we kick off, I’ll assemble a production team built to fit your specific needs. Because I personally oversee every project from beginning to end, we take on an extremely limited number of engagements each year.
