Podcast Help Wanted Listings

This page is for podcasters to advertise for actors, producers, editors, guests, etc. It should be noted that while these are basically help wanted ads, no podcast pays for its posting here.

This page will only be edited as I receive more listings. Be sure to check the dates on each listing to make sure they haven’t lapsed–and if they have, feel free to hit me up using my contact page or on Twitter.

For your wanted ad to be listed, please use my contact page. Feel free to include any links, relevant dates, etc.

A Note on Representation:

It is extremely important to us that we provide opportunities for a diverse array of performers of any race, gender, age, and identity. To that end, we encourage actors to audition for any of the roles they feel suit them. We are completely open not only to reworking character pronouns but also the character arcs themselves to best fit our chosen actor’s experience. There is only one character whose identity is fixed, which is indicated in the character description below.

Synopsis:

Windfall is the story of Cas and Kendall, two low-level criminal enforcers navigating life on the surface of a giant city. Hounded by the Wolfpac, the cultlike police force of the city’s god-queen, Wanda, Cas and Kendall are given a choice: take down their dangerous employer and protect their newfound family, or maintain the status quo.
