The online audio giant is acquiring both Podsights and Chartable. The companies make two of the leading tools related to marketing, advertising, metrics, and analytics for audio content.

The “Crime Junkie” co-host, who oversees a network of popular podcasts, has a new podcast aimed at heating up the “coldest of cases.”
