Leeside hosts first Podcast Festival

Wednesday, 3rd July, 2019 4:07pm

Cork is set to host its first ever podcast festival in October.

Ed O’Leary and Joe Kelly of The Good Room, the duo behind IMRO Award-winning Live at St Luke’s series, are presenting Cork’s first Podcast Festival from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 October.

Participating venues include Cork Opera House, whom the festival has teamed up with, Crawford Art Gallery, The River Lee Hotel and Plugd Records, as well as pubs, book shops and other nooks and crannies.

The Podcast Festival line-up, due to be announced throughout July, will feature a host of talkers, thinkers and doers covering everything from fact and fiction, stories and tales, sports, comedy and beyond.

Joe Kelly of The Good Room said: “Having watched the evolution of podcasting from a small and unique listenership to the huge fan base now, we felt that the time was right host a weekend of podcasting in Cork.”

He added that “some of the acts that we have been dealing with over the years have created audio content with huge success. It is great to team up with Cork Opera House and other top venues to present this new festival in Cork.”

Ashley Keating, Interim CEO at Cork Opera House, added: “It’s such a pleasure for the Cork Opera House to be involved in Cork’s first Podcast Festival, and an added bonus to be working with the fine humans at The Good Room once again.

“Here's to a great weekend of the best, most interesting, and maybe even strange podcasts that the genre has to offer - see you there!”

Stay tuned for more line-up announcements this month and follow the Cork Podcast Festival on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Cork’s first Podcast Festival will take place from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 October.
