“We’re giving a voice to Detroit in an under-explored world of talent,” said Mike McGettigan, Executive Producer of Planet Ant Podcasts. “We wanted to create a way to collectively showcase the podcasting talent we currently have here locally, while simultaneously introducing the medium to writers and performers who may have been interested in starting a podcast but didn’t know how to get started.”
The launch party, hosted by comedian Esther Nevarez, will act as a proper introduction to the theater's new programming with an evening of live podcast recordings. Also on the docket, stand-up from Allison Lewis and a midnight screening of Marti Scorsese's King of Comedy. The event is free and starts at 7 p.m.
