Cadence13 has announced the premiere date of the Origins: Almost Famous Turns Twenty podcast series, the sixth chapter in their hit podcast series. All five episodes of Origins: Almost Famous Turns Twenty will be available to binge on July 8, 2020, via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.COM, and everywhere podcasts are available.
Bestselling author and Origins host James Andrew Miller dives deep in the podcast to uncover bold beginnings of success stories in the worlds of television, movies, sports, music, and share stories with listeners.
On Origins: Almost Famous Turns Twenty, Miller interviews writer/director Cameron Crowe stars Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel, Jimmy Fallon, Patrick Fugit, Jason Lee, artists Peter Frampton and Nancy Wilson, casting director Gail Levin, rock photographer Neal Preston, and Pennie Trumbull, the real-life inspiration for Penny Lane.
The podcast will explore the making of the film based on Crowe’s early life and never before told stories from behind the scenes and the movie’s cultural impact as the movie continues to resonate with millions of fans twenty years after its release.
“Between his personable style, and the exhaustive research behind his wonderful questions, Jim Miller managed to summon all the spirit and emotion of ‘Almost Famous’ with the original cast,” says Cameron Crowe. “It’s a little bit of a magic trick. He put the band back together.”
“I’ve loved ‘Almost Famous’ since Day One. It’s easy to argue this is one of the greatest films of the past quarter century, and it was on my Mt. Rushmore of movies to share with my daughter. What I wasn’t expecting, however, was that Cameron and the cast would—twenty years after the movie’s release—remember so much and be so keenly affected by the experience of making the film together,” said Jim Miller. “Their memories and deeply personal reflections were raw, and fans of the film will hear a great many new revealing anecdotes and candid observations from all of them. ‘Almost Famous’ is a national treasure, and I’m thrilled to launch this incredible new chapter of ‘Origins’ with my wonderful partners, Cadence13.”
“‘Almost Famous’ is a true classic—a beloved, iconic part of our culture whose impact on movie making, the careers of many stars, and rock and roll has been deep and wide,” says Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “There’s no better way to peel back the curtain and go behind the scenes for this nostalgic journey than with Jim Miller and our next chapter of ‘Origins.'”
Hosted, produced, and written by Miller, Origins is executive produced by Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, and Cadence13. Previous chapters of the podcast have focused on Curb Your Enthusiasm, ESPN, Nick Saban, and Alabama’s Crimson Tide, Saturday Night Live, and Sex and the City.
