If comedians and the like gabbing online has replaced music during your commute or workout, you're a podcast junkie, and where better to get your fix than at the third annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival? Organized by Graham Elwood, Chris Mancini, Dave Anthony and Andy Wood, the schedule brings together Marc Maron, Aisha Tyler, Dana Gould, Larry Miller, Todd Glass, Jonah Ray and others to host live tapings of their podcasts, which cover everything from comedy to science to April Richardson's love of Saved by the Bell. Expect a few surprise appearances; past guests have included Zach Galifianakis, Andy Richter, Maria Bamford, Brian Posehn and SNL alum Laraine Newman. The weekend also features a “stand-up podsmash,” a podcast lab and panels and workshops on the how-tos of podcasting. Who knows? You could be the next Marc Maron.
