WRNB 100.3: "Are you a fan of podcasts or want to see how things work behind the scenes?...Starting on June 22, you will be able to see how podcasts are produced."

Philly Podfest, in partnership with New Media Touring, are really excited to announce four great podcasts joining the 6th annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival at the Trocadero Theater!
Last Podcast on the Left, a comedy podcast that “covers all the horrors our world has to offer,” by Ben Kissel, Marcus Parks, and Henry Zebrowski (presale starts at noon, 6/5/18)
A double-bill with Part-Time Genius, a podcast of “incredible research, fun-filled quizzes, nerdy interviews and giant, head-scratching questions,” by Will Pearson and Mangesh Hattikudur, and Ridiculous History, retellings of “weirdest stories from across the span of human civilization,” by Ben Bowlin and Noel Brown (presale starts at noon, 6/5/18)
Unhappy Hour Live with Matt Bellassai, “a comedy show full of anger, judgement, and fully-clothed full-frontal nudity,” featuring Matt Bellasai (presale starts at noon, 6/5/18)
We are so pleased to welcome back We Got This as part of the 2018 Philly Pod Fest. Hal Lublin and Mark Gagliardi (also of Thrilling Adventure Hour, Welcome to Night Vale) take the dumb issues in life that people care strongly about and settle the argument once and for all. No topic is too small or insignificant for them to dissect and decide!
We Got This joins us for two shows and a VIP meet and greet as part of a fantastic day of programming at Philly Improv Theater on June 23rd that also includes Overdue, Appointment Television, and Black Tribbles. Tickets for all these shows are on sale now.
