SXSW Comedy IFC Crossroads House Podcasting Panel

In honor of the LA Podfest – a three-day celebration of some of the biggest, best comedy podcasts that kicks of tomorrow in Santa Monica – SXSW Comedy is taking you back to 2011, when the IFC Crossroads House hosted a talk with podcast heavyweights (and frequent SXSW Comedy performers) Scott Aukerman (Comedy Bang Bang), Doug Benson (Doug Loves Movies, The Benson Interruption, Dining With Doug and Karen), and Marc Maron (WTF with Marc Maron). The conversation, moderated by Alex Blagg (co-creator of Comedy Central’s @Midnight, writer on Amazon original series Betas), brings three of the most successful show hosts – in 2011 and today – together to talk trends, strategy, and staying relevant in the rapidly growing comedy podcast landscape.
