The latest PodcastOne content partnership is with the renowned Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, and results in the launch of Geffen Playhouse Unscripted podcast. The new show dropped its first episode this week.
It’s an interview show hosted by John Horn, a journalist and radio host who plans to sit down with magician David Copperfield, playwright Neil LaBute, Jeffrey Tambor from Transparent, actress Rita Wilson, and others in coming weeks. The first-episode guest is Rainn Wilson of The Office.
The first show starts with a lengthy explanatory opening with Gilbert Cates, Executive Director of Geffen Playhouse. Cates and Horn describe the show’s rationale, and promise deep-dive interviews that go way beyond typical “What’s it like to work with Jennifer Lawrence” PR interviews.
“This new collaboration with PodcastOne is an exciting component of our ongoing commitment to share the joy of live theater to wider and more diverse audiences in new and innovative ways,” Gates said in a statement.
“Needless to say, we’re really excited about this podcast,” said Norm Pattiz, Founder and Executive Chairman of PodcastOne. “Geffen Playhouse is a Tiffany brand, run by great people with access to great guests.”
