NorthWest Podcast Fest comes to Vancouver this weekend (Contest)

Dec 19 2017, 8:15 pm

Hot on the heels of the NorthWest Comedy Fest earlier this year, the NorthWest Podcast Fest is a new festival that’s coming to Vancouver for four days from Thursday, October 2 to Sunday, October 5.

While the act of listening to a podcast may be a solo endeavour, in the comfort of your own headphones, the NorthWest Podcast Fest looks to add a little human interaction into the mix by staging your favourite comedy, science and lifestyle podcasts in a real life environment.

The Fest will be setting up shop in intimate clubs and historical theatres around town. What better way to meet your neighbours, brush up on fun facts and thoughtful thoughts than to take part in Vancouver’s newest indoor festival!
