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.

Q&A with Guy Night Movies by Teagan Kuruna

We are pleased to add guys night movies to this year's Philly Pod Fest Schedule! We have so many great podcasts participating in the 5th annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival, so we're highlighting some of them in this Q&A series. Guys Night Movies will be recording live on Saturday, July 22 at 6:00pm at Kitchen Table Gallery.

How did your show come about? How did you meet your co-hosts? Originally I (Jared) posted movie reviews on Facebook that would just have my score, and then one day I put up a post but I asked if anybody would like to be a part of a podcast review movies every week. The core original members are Rashaun, Keels, Cadillac, SkuldugCorey, and Neuman later over the last few years Bucky and Angel followed in 2016 afterwards. So we started our first podcast in 2014 with The amazing Spiderman 2, X-Men Days of Future Past, and Transformers 4. 

Are there episodes you consider your “greatest hits?” Which ones are good “entry” points for new listeners? Jared: Personal favorite two episodes of Star Wars episodes that are exclusively on iTunes, I wanted I want to pull a George Lucas and re-edit them again because of copyright pulling it from YouTube. Rashaun: some of our live shows we have done at some great conventions like Rhode Island comic con or Awesome con in Washington DC. 

Rashaun: We feel like new listeners who are brand new to the podcast need to listen to our podcast episodes on Marvel and DC movies to get some laughs and see some of our differences in film we have. 

What do you appreciate most about this medium? Keels: What we appreciate about podcasts is that anyone can get their voices heard about any topic they please. Literally anything, we've listened to podcasts about the origins of Hip-Hop, the death of Kitty Genovese, even Dungeon and Dragon quests. There's no limit. You don't have to go to school for it, you don't have to be a professional, all you need is a great group around you that shares the same passion as you. Podcasts are also entertaining for the creator and the consumer. For instance, look at us. We don't know if we're the only ones but whenever we listen to one of our podcasts, we just laugh and say "How else can people hear grown men ranting about 50 Shades Darker?" That's what we love about podcasts. 
Jared: Gathering with the guys once a week easily, I not only consider it a podcast, I consider them a second family. We recently now meet every other Sunday to film for movie talk show. 

What do you most look forward to when doing live shows? How does the show change? Most of us look forward to the crowd. We like when can go to a convention out of state and see if we can fill a room with 200 or 300 plus real podcast fans who have either listened to us since day one or are brand new to us. By the end of that live show they become a fan because they enjoy our conversation and our chemistry as friends and we give them a great show to enjoy.

Q&A with Mouthful by Teagan Kuruna

We have so many great podcasts participating in the 5th annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival, so we're highlighting some of them in this Q&A series. Mouthful will be recording live on Sunday, July 23 at 6:00pm at Kitchen Table Gallery.

How did your show come about? How did you meet your co-hosts? Mouthful was created after host and producer Yvonne Latty approached Philadelphia Young Playwrights (PYP) with the idea of producing a podcast. Yvonne, a longtime journalist and journalism professor, became familiar with PYP, an arts education non-profit founded in 1987, after Executive Director Lisa Nelson-Haynes joined the organization in April 2016. Yvonne and Lisa have known each other for years through their children, and Yvonne felt like the organization and our work was ripe content for a podcast. From there, we brainstormed various ideas for formats and specific content, eventually landing on what has become Mouthful!

Are there episodes you consider your “greatest hits?” Which ones are good “entry” points for new listeners? This sounds like a cheap answer but: all of the episodes are good entry points for new listeners! Every episode is thematically different. Every episode is relatively brief (19-27 minutes). And there are only 11 episodes as part of the first season. Episode Four, "Neighborhood Blue" is a favorite among staff at PYP because it really taps into a salient and important issue of our time--community policing--and looks at it from three distinctly different points of view, including a law enforcement officer of 53 years and a mother/son duo in the wake of a stop and frisk.

What do you appreciate most about this medium? It can be whatever it wants to be! Part of the challenge and thrill of producing Mouthful was figuring out what the format and content should be. While there are many, many good precedents out there in the podcast world, there are no set rules, and the genre is constantly evolving and changing. There's also a level of engagement with audio that is really exciting. Without visuals, listeners are able to fill in the blanks about who they are listening to; they fill the spaces with themselves and focus on what's being said. That's often lost in other mediums, which have to deal with appearances more intentionally.

What do you most look forward to when doing live shows? How does the show change? Our live show as part of the Festival will be our first live show! So we don't have any precedent. We're most looking forward to having a live audience and opening the conversation up to the people in the room.

Where can people find your podcast and hosts? Mouthful is available on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and Google Play. The podcast can also be streamed at www.mouthfulpodcastphilly.com, which also includes show notes and more content for each individual episode. We're on Facebook and Twitter @mouthfulphilly.
