Yo Fringe Artists!
We want to interview you!

What It Is Podcast is Edmonton’s Award-Winning Arts Interview show dedicated to promoting the artists who live and visit our theatre-crazy-city.

We have a dedicated listenership of arts-lovers in the city and many look forward to our huge collection of interviews to get to know the artists of Fringe and to help them pick shows they might want to see.

Get interviewed by What It Is Podcast as part of the Fringe!

WHERE: The NORTH Beer Tent on the Fringe Grounds
WHEN: Saturday August 19: 12pm – 3pm, Sunday August 20: 1:30pm – 4:30pm
HOW: Interviews are done a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis. Arrive at the tent, look for the dudes with microphones on a high table, check in and chill out!

Recording with each guest will be approx. 5mins. We only require one or two reps per show at a time. Please do not send multiple people to discuss the same show at different intervals. These interviews will be collected, edited into hour long episodes and released on Monday August 21, Tuesday August 22, and Wednesday August 23. They will be available on iTunes and other podcast apps on our feed “What It Is podcast” and whatitispodcast.com.

Be prepared for a loose and casual conversation about your show. It would also be great if you could bring a copy of your handbill so I can read the information for our listeners and keep it for our records. You will also be encouraged to give your short elevator pitch during the interview.
