Welcome to the first episode of Cartoon Brew’s new podcast hosted by Jen Hurler.
With this podcast, we aimed to broadly recreate the website experience in an audio format. In other words, a podcast about the animation industry that emphasizes accuracy and thoroughness, insider knowledge about how the industry works, and an independent editorial POV.
But even with these guiding principles, the podcast remains an open-ended experiment. There’s no existing model for the type of podcast that we wanted to create, and we’re not rushing to settle into a formula. So as we refine the podcast, we’re going to continue playing around with different approaches – some episodes will focus on one big theme like this debut episode that looks at the pandemic’s effect on the animation world, while other episodes may feature in-depth interviews, industry-related roundtables, and historical explorations. Hopefully we can keep surprising both listeners and ourselves with the possibilities of this format.
