Connect Invest, the industry’s leading collateralized debt investment platform, offers new competitive return rates up to 9%

LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2023 – (

Connect Invest, an online investment company, increased all of the interest rates today on its short-note offerings following the recent Fed rate hike to provide investors with an opportunity to earn significant returns with short-term commitments and low investment minimums, starting at $500. Short notes allow investors to commit their money for short commitments with defined exit dates. 

While interest rates have risen on savings and CD accounts, they continue to have a negative real yield as the U.S. inflation rate sits at 7.11%. According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the average national deposit rate for savings accounts is 0.3%, while the average for 24-month CD accounts is 1.06%.

Connect Invest offers an alternative investment vehicle that mitigates both market volatility and uncertainty while providing residual income through the form of monthly interest payments. “We view this uncertain time in the economy as an opportunity to offer unprecedented value to our clients,” said Brandon Kelly, Vice President of Marketing and Operations at Connect Invest. “We look forward to serving new investors seeking stable residual monthly income during the term of their investment.” 

Previously, return rates for Connect Invest short notes six-month and 12-month commitments were 5.5% and 7.25%, respectively. The new rates are now 7.5% and 8%, respectively. The 24-month short note continues to pay 9%. Funds from all short note investments are used for purchasing first-position collateralized notes of various real estate projects. With access to over $500 million in collateralized projects, Connect Invest is constantly adding projects to the portfolio for continued diversification.

The New Fathom Podcast Player

Features include AI semantic search, dynamically generated chapters, clip sharing, and transcripts.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – January 6, 2023 – ( is disrupting the podcast player ecosystem again by introducing more powerful AI functionality into the podcast listener’s experience. With Fathom, listeners get more out of their podcasts, especially those who like to “go deeper”.

When first launched in 2022, Fathom listeners could effortlessly discover new podcasts using a feed of podcast “highlights”—AI-generated previews of podcasts tailored to their interests by Fathom’s AI. Listeners could also ask natural questions such as “How can I improve my focus?” or “What is the future of AI?” and instantly listen to short clips from podcasts that answer the question.

Now Fathom has been completely re-designed to include both game-changing features (like creating custom clips and AI chapters) and daily driver features (downloads, much faster UI), so Fathom easily replaces listeners’ go-to daily podcast player. Let’s dig into what’s in this new redesign:

Clip sharing

Fathom’s podcast player will now allow users to create custom “clips” so that they can share their favorite moments with friends. Fathom uses “smart clipping” AI technology to automatically capture the main idea of that moment, so listeners can confidently save the right moments with just a tap.


Listeners can now easily browse chapters defined by podcasters or using Fathom’s dynamically-generated chapters. Fathom’s chapters are generated in an intelligent way, based on the ideas within the podcasts. Listeners will be able to instantly swipe through any episode’s chapters to get an idea of what it’s all about.


Listeners can now browse a podcast’s entire transcript (generated by AI). Reading a long podcast is as intuitive as skimming through an essay or a book.

Power Drawer

From anywhere on the home screen, listeners can now easily pull down a “power drawer” that contains all of their favorite podcasts, all of the episodes they haven’t finished, and all of their “stations”, which are custom feeds of podcast highlights to help listeners discover podcasts in more personalized ways.

For those already experienced with Fathom’s player, they’ll find a multitude of improvements that have hit every part of the app, including improvements to search and recommendations, episode downloads, a sleep feature, and new episode notifications.
