What is the Chicago Podcast Festival

2017 will mark the CPF’s second year celebrating the art of Podcasts in well known Chicago venues such as The Beat Kitchen, Chicago Theater Works, The Athenaeum Theatre, Laugh Factory and Old Town Folk School to name a few. Audience members get to see their favorite podcasts on-stage, IRL, explore new podcasts, and put faces to the voices!

After casting a wide net to plant it’s flag last year, the Chicago Podcast Festival will focus more on the hometown heroes of Chicago’s independent podcast scene in 2017, while still including some of your national favorites.

This is a place where you can not only see your favorite shows, but be with people who all share a love and curiosity for the medium of this art form.

Ticket prices vary show-by-show but mostly fall between $10 and $40 – dependent on venue, and artist.
