Welcome to the second of three special episodes recorded at the 5th annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival, which took place at the Sofitel hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, Sept. 23-25, 2016. After last year’s festival, we didn’t dare dream our second visit could match the excitement and amazingly good time we’d had. But, it did! Whether you are a podcaster or a podcast fan, we urge you to make your plans now for next year’s L.A. Podcast Festival. We guarantee we’ll be there!
