Unsung Heroes

Please join us this weekend in supporting our fellow online audio lovers as they raise their voices to raise money for those in need.

This Saturday, November 24th at noon, several podcasters are coming together to support the Sandy relief effort by participating in a “24 Hour Live Podcast for Hurricane Sandy”. Some of the podcasters already on-board include Ben Glieb (Last Week on Earth, Chelsea Lately), Mike Zapcic & Ming Chen (I Sell Comics, AMC’s Comic Book Men), Greg Proops (The Smartest Man in the World, Chelsea Lately), Kelly Carlin (Waking from the American Dream), and DJ James (Tha’ Breaks).

The funds that are raised through the event will be donated to two great organizations helping those affected by the hurricane: Staten Strong, which is helping fulfill immediate needs on the ground in the Staten Island community, and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, which is working to aid, comfort, and rebuild New Jersey.

Stitcher Radio, the leader in Internet Radio for the world beyond music, is promoting and hosting the event, and Triton is providing the live stream. We are thrilled to be working with so many awesome people in the industry and to be part of such a great cause.

These one-of-a-kind podcasts will keep you entertained for hours (24 to be exact) and will support a still much-needed cause. So, if you’re sitting around with your family on Saturday wondering what you can do that doesn’t include eating more leftover turkey, tune in to the 24 Hour Podcast for Hurricane Sandy!
