Press for Philly Podfest 2018! by Teagan Kuruna

Read up on what's being said about the 6th annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival!

PHILLY VOICE: "The festival is an opportunity to get behind the scenes of a favorite show, or to find a new podcast to binge and obsess over."

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."

DAILYLOCALNEWS.COM: In an article about third-time festival participant Dissecting the 80s - “We loved the movie[s] as kids, but that doesn’t always mean they hold up when you revisit them, so I’m excited to talk about it.”

We Got This returns to PhillyPodFest, Joins the Lineup At PHIT by Teagan Kuruna


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.
