The incredible line-up features international and homegrown podcasters, discussing everything from food to music to literature to football, film, comedy and much more.
One of the unmissable shows is The Guilty Feminist.
Deborah Frances-White and co-host for the night Alison Spittle will be live at Vicar Street, 1st October, talking about the noble goals of 21st century feminists and the insecurities which undermine them.
We like the sound of that.
Another one not to miss out on is the Blindboy Podcast in Vicar Street on 7th October.
The Podcast does not only indoctrinate mental health issues but reaches further into a wide spectrum of current topics, may it be gun laws, feminism, racism or a bit of history. BlindBoy has it covered!
I think we're all aware about the phenomenal rise of the podcast as a form of both entertainment and education.
This will be the second year of teh festival and it looks set to just keep on growing, celebrating the podcasting world and connecting fans with the people who make them.
DUBLIN! Expect a wicked double headliner down at The Liberty Hall on 12th October with Dubland and Up to 90. Dubland is a fortnightly chat podcast in which Suzanne Kane and PJ Gallagher unpack the news of the week. Whether it's political, global or personal news, there's always something to send PJ into a rant and there's always a stick for Suzanne to poke him with. With well over a million downloads, this podcast is not just popular among its listeners, it's a hit that needs to be consumed as soon as it's available. Also taking to the stage in Liberty Hall is the latest podcast from Headstuff, featuring two of Ireland’s most exciting comics, Emma Doran and Julie Jay. The show covers anything and everything 90s, as long as it happened during the decade of Fresh Prince and ‘going-out’ combat pants, these two gingerettes have got you covered.Treat yourself to tickets this coming Monday from 9am! #DPF18
