The Washington Post has already heralded 2014 as “the year the podcast came back.” Here in New York we know that it never left, but with super-hits like NPR’s Serial and Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk, and the continuation of the wonderfully weird Welcome to Night Vale, we’re going to call it “the year the podcast proved itself.” Feel the love live at NYC Podfest 2015 — a full weekend of onstage broadcasts at The Bell House in Gowanus and Fontana’s on the Lower East Side. This year features The Daily Show Podcast Without Jon Stewart, The Dork Forest with Bridget Everett, The AndrewAndrew Show, and a special edition of Risk! (the theme is BUTTS) with Kevin Allison, Sasheer Zamata, Matt Braunger, and more. Don’t miss this chance to see all the comedians you love to listen to.
