Schroeder Clark aims to bring the podcast back to the roots of its early days, focusing on authenticity, candid, and quick-witted takes on her day-to-day life. “I’m peeling away the structure and letting the show be a little more chaotic…but life is chaotic, so there’s that,” said Schroeder Clark. “The podcasting space has grown and evolved so much, and it’s become more formal than when I first started in 2015. I want to bring back the informality and destructure it a bit. I want to get back to the stream of consciousness rants, further connect with my listeners, and have more fun with the hour each week we have together. Dear Media is like the girl’s girl of podcast networks and I love how supportive they’ve been of this vision.”

Schroeder Clark is a two-time New York Times bestselling author, media personality, and relatable mother of two with a combined audience of over four million loyal followers. A clear leader in the podcast space since launching her show in March 2015, Schroeder Clark trailblazed her way through the audio-only space by being one of the first to turn her podcast into a live show with three tours, selling out shows across the nation. Her most recent “Mommy Dearest” tour in 2023 sold out in 11 markets, which included Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia. Her latest book released in 2022, Off With My Head: The Definitive Basic B*tch Handbook to Survive Rock Bottom, became an instant New York Times Best Seller and was listed #1 on Amazon charts in multiple categories.

Dear Media is a platform for amplifying women’s voices with original, creative programming. Since launching in 2018, Dear Media has rapidly grown to encompass 80+ shows including “Pretty Basic” with Alisha Marie and Remi Cruz, “Not Skinny But Not Fat” with Amanda Hirsch and “The Toast” with Jackie & Claudia Oshry.
