Suspended Honest Actors’ Podcast spared following sponsorship deal
A podcast for actors that was put on hold earlier this year after failing to secure funding has been saved, thanks to a deal with ticketing app TodayTix.
The Honest Actors’ Podcast, which was suspended by its creators in February, will return for a second series later this month following an appeal for a sponsor.
The project, which also hosts a blog, features interviews with actors about working as a performer and its challenges. It was initially founded in 2015 and was self-funded by its creator, actor Jonathan Harden.
Harden said he was “delighted” to be bringing back the podcast for a second series, which will feature interviews with actors including Amanda Abbington, Noma Dumezweni, Michaela Coel and Joel McGann.
Harden added: “Very shortly after I had to pull the plug, the guys at TodayTix got in touch to say that they were fans of the show and were interested in working with me to bring it back.”
Ticketing app TodayTix was launched last year.
TodayTix marketing director Fiona Sellick said the podcast offered “invaluable advice” to a tech-savvy generation of performers.
