EXCLUSIVE: Shaniqua McClendon, who is political director at Pod Save America producer Crooked Media, has signed with ICM Partners.

She regularly appears across the company’s slate of podcasts including Hysteria, What A Day and Lovett or Leave It and she led the creation of the company’s voter engagement program, Vote Save America and volunteer engagement program, Adopt a State.

McClendon has spent the past decade in politics; prior to Crooked Media, she served as a policy advisor to Senator Kay R. Hagan and Legislative Director to Congresswoman Alma S. Adams, where she spearheaded the creation of the first-ever Congressional Bipartisan HBCU Caucus. McClendon began her career as a White House Intern for President Barack Obama.

McClendon is ICM’s latest podcast signing as the medium explodes; last month it signed ABF Creative, the podcast company behind children’s podcast African Folktales.

The move is the latest step in ICM’s podcast business, which has recently secured deals for Ariel Ramchandani’s No Place Like Home, about the heist of Dorothy’s iconic ruby slippers, John Stamos’ The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra for Wondery and Alan Cummings’ Hot White Heist for Audible.
