Cast Party - podcast stage show now available in Netflix

Cast Party self-described as “the Lollapalooza of podcasts” is now available to stream on Netflix.

Charlie Lyne writing in The Guardian:

For all its logistical ambition, Cast Party is sadly most successful as a demonstration of what happens when you take a winning formula and add to it: more often that not, you end up taking something away. Here, the propulsive conversational style of Reply All is reduced to the spectacle of two men reading awkwardly from lecterns while a third sits behind a laptop. The inventive use of music common to many US podcasts is reduced to an excruciatingly protracted performance by a brass quartet. And each evidently well-meaning host is reduced to a wannabe comedian, desperately trying to impress at the end-of-year talent show.
