Video may have killed the radio star, but podcasts are alive and thriving. With this year being dubbed the year of podcast (just like last year, and the one before that), it’s about time Toronto got its own festival dedicated to the popular craft,.
Canadian international documentary festival Hot Docs is hosting the first ever podcast festival in the city. Combining live shows, listening parties and panels, whether you’re a podcast listener or podcast host yourself, this festival is not to be missed.
The multiple live shows make up the main events of the Hot Docs’ podcast festival. Some of the best programs on air right now, including Criminal, Reply All, Song Exploder, Science Vs. and Mystery Show, will be premiering new episodes, with some even making their Canadian debut.
In addition to live shows, the festival will host two panels focused on hosting and marketing original podcasts for anyone looking to be the next Ira Glass. Learn everything you need to know about producing, recording and marketing the next great podcast with guidance from JP Davidson (Risk Takers), Dan Misener (Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, Pacific Content), Katie Jensen (The Imposter) and Hannah Sung (Colour Code).
Hosts and producers will come together at an informal (and free!) networking event at the Markham House. Mingle with Criminal’s Phoebe Judge, Song Exploder’s Hrishikesh Hirway and other members of the Radiotopia collective. You can RSVP here.
