Nearly every industry was hit hard by the pandemic, but not many were hit as hard as the performance stages industry which is why PodcastOne is partnering with Hyundai to produce three vodcasts to support the National Independent Venue Association.

The association has a hashtag #SaveOurStages to raise funds for NIVA’s grant program to help small, independent venues many of which were completely shut down for months with no federal relief so far despite a promise of billions from the Small Business Administration.

The vodcasts are hosted by comedian Adam Carolla and New York Times Best-Selling authors Keltie Knight, Becca Tobin, and Jac Vanek of The Ladygang podcast and will be broadcast on LiveXLive Media and were recorded at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel and the Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles.

Here’s the schedule:

  • May 27, 2021: Broadway vodcast hosted by the LadyGang from the Theatre at the Ace Hotel
  • June 3, 2021: Comedy vodcast hosted by Adam Carolla from the Theatre at the Ace Hotel
  • June 10, 2021: Music-themed vodcast hosted by the LadyGang from the Whisky A Go Go

“We’re excited to be partnering with LiveXLive Media and PodcastOne to help support entertainment venues affected by the pandemic,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. “Similar to how Hyundai questioned everything to make the 2022 Tucson the most advanced Tucson ever, the vodcast hosts ask some tough questions in hopes to inspire bold change.”

“Partnering with Hyundai on this campaign is an honor for PodcastOne.  Our talent are all performers at heart and working together to raise money and call attention to the importance of saving live performance venues is a priority for us. We thank Hyundai and are thrilled to work with them in their support of artists around the country,” said Kit Gray, President of PodcastOne.
