The second annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival was a success! Thank you to all the participating podcasts:
We are ever grateful for our two venues, Tattooed Mom and Philly Improv Theater. In particular, a special shout out to Robert and the Tattooed Mom crew for their social media love, fabulous specials, and generous donation of their upstairs room.
We thank for live streaming the entire festival and recording every show and PhillyCAM for broadcasting the Story Shuffle show.
The Festival wouldn’t have been possible without our other sponsors.
Can’t wait to do it again next year!
-Nathan and Teagan, co-founders of the Philadelphia Podcast Festival

Thanks To Tattooed Mom - You are the coolest!

We just wanted to take a moment to give heartfelt thanks to our fantastic sponsor and primary venue, Tattooed Mom on South St. It's a fantastic space and we wouldn't have been able to make the festival as fun and fantastic as it's been so far without their ceaseless support.

Plus, they just introduced two new specials for this Saturday:
$2 Narragansett Lager tall boy cans & $2 small tater tots. That's in addition to their usual specials and free Mom's Chips for all festival attendees.

Come on out and be sure to get your Mom's Chip!

SWT Live 8/23, 6pm

Story Shuffle - August 22, 7pm

Hear five of Philadelphia's best storytellers share tales inspired by the theme of 'Narcs' at this live taping of Story Shuffle, a regular, theme, first-person storytelling event among friends. It's like the popular First Person Arts Story Slams or the Moth podcast but without judges and among friends, encouraging a dinner table-style discourse about the silly, sad and insane. The night's storytellers will be First Person Arts Grand Slam Winner and playwright R. Eric Thomas, Philly Give and Get founder Lansie Sylvia, Backyard Writers Group members Kathryn Bezella andPatrick McNeil, with host Christopher Wink, the cofounder of Philly and Philly Tech Week. It's the second year that Story Shuffle is part of the Philadelphia Podcast Festival.

Can't make the show? StoryShuffle is going to be live-streamed by our friends at PhillyCAM!
