Attn Fringe Artists! We Will Forcefully Promote You!

Here at the What It Is Podcast we love The Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival and every year we make it a tradition to interview AS MANY FRINGE ARTISTS AS POSSIBLE!

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.

Are you a Fringe Artist? If so…

We would like to interview you!

We will be in the NORTH BEER TENT on the Fringe Grounds at 3 different times in the first weekend. You can feel free to drop by at ANY TIME and we will put you in the queue to be interviewed. We are seeing artists on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis.

Friday August 12: 7pm – 9:30pm
Saturday August 13: 6pm – 8pm
Sunday August 14: 1pm – 4pm

Recording with each guest will be approx. 7mins. 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 15, Tuesday August 16 and Wednesday August 17 and Thursday August 18.

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.

Feel free to email us at whatitispodcast@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns!

We hope to see you at the North Beer Tent on Friday, Saturday or Sunday!
