(LOS ANGELES - Oct. 19, 2005) The LA Podcasters, a network of Los Angeles-based podcast producers whose shows are as spread out in subject-matter as the region's freeway infrastructre, will host their first annual Podcast Freeway Series featuring an eclectic line-up of popular podcasts produced and distributed by the group's members. The Freeway Series will be recorded live at Podcast Expo in Ontario, Calif. on Nov. 11 and 12.
 

"Used to be you had to travel a lot of road to experience L.A.'s rich cultural diversity. The goal of our Podcast Freeway Series is to showcase everything Los Angeles has to offer -- beyond the freeway off ramp - by focusing the spotlight on these outspoken LA podcasters," said Lance Anderson, founder of LA Podcasters, and host of the Verge of the Fringe podcast. "Through the diversity of our membership and the podcasts they produce, our Podcast Freeway Series will be a reflection of the many faces and cultures of this sprawlopolis we call home."

Members of the news media are invited to go behind the scenes and watch the making of the Podcast Freeway Series, which will be produced at the LA Podcasters exhibit (booth number 313) in the Ontario Convention Center. Podcasts are audio programs that listeners can subscribe to at no cost via the internet.
