Professionally recorded every Monday at The Stude in TwentyFiveEight Studios in Scranton and released exclusively on nepascene.com every Tuesday, the NEPA Scene Podcast is a free supplement to the website, expanding on the arts and entertainment stories covered on the site and going beyond them to discuss other news and entertainment topics.
Each week, the unedited and uncensored podcast features Rich Howells, NEPA Scene founder and editor; Mark Dennebaum, president and owner of TwentyFiveEight Studios; Lauren Quirolgico, commercial and content strategist at Lavelle Strategy Group and editor at TwentyFiveEight; and in the control room, Jimmy Reynolds, a musician, teacher, and lead audio engineer at TwentyFiveEight. Every episode streams on SoundCloud and nepascene.com.
In the second episode of the podcast, they are joined by special guest Cory Wolff, president of Everyone You Know Entertainment and NEPA Scene music business columnist, to talk about the many ways the distribution of entertainment media has changed and developed in recent years. Record labels, crowdfunding, streaming services, marketing, and other subjects are discussed.
