The podcast festival field for Fall has gotten more crowded with the announcement tht MIDROLL MEDIA will hold its first "NOW HEAR THIS" festival in ANAHEIM OCTOBER 28-30. The event will follow by a month the established L.A. PODCAST FESTIVAL (a/k/a L.A. PODFEST) (9/23-25) and LONDON PODFEST FESTIVAL (9/23-36).
The festival, aiming at fans of comedy podcasts, will feature several of MIDROLL's EARWOLF network hosts performing as headliners, including MARC MARON, EARWOLF co-founder SCOTT AUKERMAN's "COMEDY BANG! BANG!," LAUREN LAPKUS, and PAUL SCHEER, along with other shows.
MARON said, "For the first time, I'll be joined live on stage by the co-creator of 'WTF,' BRENDAN MCDONALD, for a live conversation about what it took to make 'WTF,' and we'll be taking questions from the fans in attendance. It'll be a great way to give podcast fans a behind-the-scenes look at the podcast in a way we've never done before. And I always love interacting with the fans, which is what makes an event like this special."
