Midroll's Howl Premium Debuts 'Something Cool' Audio Documentary Podcast
October 26, 2015 at 11:39 AM (PT)
MIDROLL MEDIA's HOWL PREMIUM subscription podcast service is launching an audio documentary series, "SOMETHING COOL," TODAY (10/26). The show is being produced by actress/writer and "CRYBABIES" podcast co-host SARAH THYRE and filmmaker RACHEL LICHTMAN and debuts with an episode featuring the story of singer/songwriter BOBBIE GENTRY, narrated by MARY STEENBURGEN with commentary from ROSANNE CASH, SUSANNA HOFFS, KELLY HOGAN, EVIE SANDS, JILL SOBULE, and TARA MURTHA. Future episodes look at the careers of THE GTOS and "MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS" actress CAROL CLEVELAND.
"We have a responsibility to let people tell their own stories, and let the narrative unfold organically," said LICHTMAN. "By design, each story is shared through a tapestry of sound: layers of clips and conversations that not only transport the listener to those key moments in time, but also help bring the audience a closer view into the artist's world from the perspective of insiders."
"'SOMETHING COOL' was borne of our love for BOBBIE GENTRY and her music," said THYRE. "We quickly discovered our shared passion for bringing other deserving artists into the spotlight. At the end of each episode, we hope that everyone will be inspired to pick up where the show leaves off and go beyond that to becoming a new fan. We want them to seek out their stories and support their work."
