All your ear friends — which is what the cool kids call podcast hosts, trust us — are getting together this fall. Marc Maron (of WTF With Marc Maron), Scott Aukerman (of Comedy Bang! Bang!), Lauren Lapkus (of With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus), and Paul Scheer (of How Did This Get Made) are headlining the Now Hear This podcast festival, which will take place at the Anaheim Marriott from October 28–30 this year. In addition to having the chance to see live performances (and discover that those voices belong to humans with bodies), the festival will also include opportunities to hang out with hosts from a variety of podcasts, comedy and otherwise, at meet and greets, meals with performers, and more. Midroll Media, which is organizing the event, refers to the experience as the “Comic Con of Podcasting,” meaning you’ll want to start growing out that mustache for your Maron cosplay now.
