Welcome to the last of the four special episodes recorded in the Podcast Lab during the 6th annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, CA, October 6-8, 2017. As was the case in 2015 and 2016, I had an amazing time at the festival and am extremely grateful to Graham Elwood, Chris Mancini, Dave Anthony and the whole LA PodFest crew, for all the time and effort they put into creating this annual highlight of the podcasting year. I'll continue to hold out hope for a 2018 festival, so I can again enjoy a weekend of collaboration to bring you these fun special episodes.
I spent the weekend recording in the Podcast Lab with fellow podcasters and special guests. I asked new friends to tell me about one film that influenced them to be who they are, and had old friends sit down to catch-up with me. In this episode, you'll hear from:
Darcy Staniforth, LA PodFest volunteer, writer for Cinema Sentries, and voice actor on Puppet Hunt podcast. Hear her influential films on episode 68 of Movies Made Me.
Chris Mancini, comedian, co-founder of the Los Angeles Podcast Festival, co-host of Comedy Film Nerds podcast, and Conversations from the Abyss podcast .
Levi Burns, host of Real Life With Levi podcast.
Tarik Naylor, podcast fan, aspiring comedian, and host of Randomly Relevant podcast.
Joe Meyers, co-host of Podcast Macabre.
Samm Levine, comedian, actor, star of Crunch Time (available on iTunes), and co-host of Kevin Pollak's Chat Show.
Ali Handal, recording artist, and author of Guitar for Girls.
Martin, host of Frightfully Uninformed podcast.
Finally, we teamed with Brendan Creecy of Radio Brendoman podcast to bring you an end-of-festival conversation with Todd Glass, comedian, and host of The Todd Glass Show podcast.
