In addition there will be over 30 live podcast recordings. One will be from a podcast called The Brilliant Idiots, hosted by Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schultz. Every week, the hosts explore the issues of the day “in a style that’s often idiotic, sometimes brilliant, and always hysterical.” New episodes are available every Thursday afternoon on SoundCloud.

It appears that more announcements will be made about additional featured big names and/or participating podcasts as we get closer to October.
