The Los Angeles Podcast Festival is happening this weekend at the Sofitel in Beverly Hills. This year Earwolf and Midroll are sponsors of the fest, and eight shows on our roster will be there live–see a schedule below. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see some of the best podcasters, as well as catch the Standup Podsmash! show on Saturday night, featuring stand up from the likes of Marc Maron, Todd Glass, Aisha Tyler and Dana Gould.
There are also several panels and workshops digging into the nuts and bolts of podcasting. Midroll’s Adam Sachs will be on a panel addressing sponsor relations, happening Saturday at noon. On Sunday Never Not Funny producer Matt Belknap will discuss getting a job in podcasting on a panel at noon, and Improv4Humans’ Matt Besser will join Squarespace’s Ilyas Frenkel for a workshop on making money in podcasting at 4 PM. I’ll also be part of a panel on getting started on podcasting, at 2 PM.
