Drumroll, please…

The schedule for the Philadelphia Podcast Festival 2019 is here! Based on this line-up, our 7th year is going to be incredible. This is by far the most wide-ranging set of podcasts we’ve seen. The topics and formats are creative, fascinating, and thought-provoking, and the hosts are amplifying their own and others’ diverse voices.

Plus, we have beloved returning venues (hey, Tattooed Mom and Victoria Freehouse!), and three brand-new additions (World Cafe Live, Indy Hall, and the National Liberty Musuem). Can’t wait to bring Philly podcasting to these community spaces.

See the full schedule.

Kicking off philly podfest 2019: Mueller She Wrote, RISK!, and Yo Is This Racist? by Teagan Kuruna

The Philadelphia Podcast Festival is thrilled to announce that three fantastic podcasts will be opening Podfest 2019 at World Cafe Live.

On Wednesday, July 17, Mueller, She Wrote will be recording live at 7:00pm. Mueller, She Wrote simplifies the absurd amount of Mueller news and wraps it up into informative, hilarious bites. MSW is committed to separating the facts from conjecture with just the right amount of snark. The podcast bills itself as “a binder full of women unraveling the mysteries of the Mueller investigation.”

On Thursday, July 18, we’ll start off with RISK! Live at 7:00pm. RISK! is a live show and podcast where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share. RISK! has featured incredible true stories from Sarah Silverman, Kevin Nealon, Dan Savage, Margaret Cho, Andy Dick, Michael Ian Black, and regular folks from around the world.

And then at 9:30, Yo, Is This Racist? Live! will answer questions from fan-submitted voicemails and emails about whether or not something is, in fact, racist.

Presale tickets for all three shows go on sale May 22, 2019. Use code PODFEST. Stay tuned for the full Philly Podfest line-up, including dozens of locally-produced podcasts, coming soon!
