Launched this past summer, Internet broadcaster Radiotitans.com is the brainchild of Jake Belcher, Brant Thoman and Carl Kozlowski, a stand-up comic, film critic and arts editor for the Pasadena Weekly. For a fee of $50 per hour, a wide range of comics and entertainers have chosen to stream their programs through the Hollywood-based outlet. Alongside flagship podcast Grand Theft Audio, hosted by the station’s three co-founders.
There are currently 16 shows on the grid including weekly interview programs Name-Dropping with Jason Stuart, for which the openly gay comic (and SAG LGBT Committee chair) has talked to everyone from Hollywood writer Bruce Vilanch to actress Michelle Lee, and Inside Out with Joie Blaney. Come January, more impressive programming will be added.
Writer and executive producer Rick Najera (In Living Color), set next month to also direct another Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase for CBS, will be starting up an interview program focused on ethnic and other diversity-spectrum entertainers. Two more Radiotitans.com programs being finalized are to be hosted by Puerto Rican comic Brenda Lamberty and African-American stand-up Laurence White.
