The Daring Audio Cinema of John Cameron Mitchell

Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

John Cameron Mitchell is one of podcasting's most exhilarating innovators. With his revolutionary musical Anthem: Homunculus (co-created with composer Bryan Weller), and his upcoming Cancellation Island (co-created with Michael Cavadias), a hilariously hyperbolic, yet all-too-realistic satire depicting a rehab for cancelled people, Mitchell, in partnership with Topic Studios, brilliantly reimagines audio fiction with fearless storytelling, daring production methods, and a powerful sense of community. Join Mitchell, Cavadias, and Topic's Christy Gressman to discuss Mitchell's work, and the exciting creative opportunities audio fiction offers.
