New York, NY — July 25, 2018 — CoinDesk, the leading digital media, events, and information services company for the crypto asset and blockchain technology community, today announced "Late Confirmation," a new daily audio show hosted by a rotating list of cryptocurrency’s top reporters and columnists from the news pit of CoinDesk. Commencing July 25th, the show will debut on weekday evenings and consist of a 15-20 minute audio briefing of the day’s top crypto headlines.

Late Confirmation will bring an editorial lens to the constantly changing world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology through two to four segments per episode and an expert guest interview. Late Confirmation will be a fusion between the quick news bites of NPR’s Up First and the insightful discussions of the New York Times’, The Daily, or Vox’s daily podcast, Today, Explained.

“With Late Confirmation, we are bringing CoinDesk’s reporting into a new format, and providing our readers a new way to interact with the news,” said Pete Rizzo, CoinDesk Editor-in-Chief.

Podcasting is a new front for CoinDesk, which has spent much of 2018 scaling up capabilities in video and multimedia to provide current and timely information on the rapidly growing world of blockchain technology.

Listeners will be able to tune in to Late Confirmation on CoinDesk.com or can subscribe now on Apple’s free Podcasts app. The show will air weekdays at 7:00 pm ET.

The podcast will be an original CoinDesk Production. Their partner for distributing Late Confirmation is The Podglomerate, a podcast network that develops, promotes, and monetizes emerging podcasts.

“A daily podcast is the perfect tool to explore the crypto space in a low contact, non intrusive way,” said Jeff Umbro, The Podglomerate CEO. “We’re excited to be working with CoinDesk on this initiative.”

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford is the official launch sponsor for Late Confirmation.
