Los Angeles Kickstarts a Podcast Festival

Los Angeles is working its grassroots comedy magic of late. On the heels of the successful LA Riot Comedy Festival kickstarter campaign, Comedy Film Nerds' Graham Elwood and Chris Mancini are heading up their own campaign to fund a Los Angeles podcasting festival.

The Los Angeles Podcast Festival (www.lapodfest.com) is set for October 12-14, 2012, in Santa Monica. They're proposing to have a slew of live recordings throughout the weekend along with a few comedy shows. The festival doesn't specify whether it's all comedy or not but the early listed participating shows are mostly comedy. No surprises there. I'm excited to see how the event develops if it secures the necessary startup funds.

The announced participating shows so far:

WTF With Marc Maron
Never Not Funny
The Todd Glass Show
Comedy Film Nerds
Walking The Room
The Dork Forest
The 40-Year-Old Boy
The Minivan Men
For Crying Out Loud

The AV Club: Podmass September 8-14

Another week of podcast came and went, including a slew of comedy podcast episodes. The A.V. Club podcast listening factory (possibly not a real thing) released their weekly Podmass recaps and highlights. Not as lengthy a list as the past few weeks, but the comedy shows winning critical acclaim from The A.V. Club feature a heavy emphasis on the obnoxious. We're starting to think this is becoming it's own comedy podcast subgenre. The Podmass also offers up some intros to The Comedy Film Nerds and The Smartest Man In The World - new to The A.V. Club and some of our longstanding Plop List listed shows.

Comedy Bang! Bang! #122 - featuring Zach Galifianakis, Paul F. Tompkins, Yo La Tengo
