New Orleans, LA – August 23, 2022 – Acclaimed actor, producer, writer and director, Seth Green, will be a featured guest on the third-annual Podathon charity event raising money for Make-A-Wish on September 17, 2022. Green will be the guest of Scotty Jayro of The Bombadcast and the interview will stream at 7pm ET / 4pm PT on the Podathon YouTube livestream. Podathon 2022 will begin the 14-hour fundraising marathon at 9am ET / 6am PT that day on www.ThePodathon.com and www.YouTube.com/ATGcast starring celebrity guests and content creators from around the STAR WARS galaxy.
“I’m excited to be a part of this event that combines the passion of one of my favorite fandoms with the incredible work done by Make-A-Wish,” said Seth Green, creator of Cartoon Network’s celebrated Robot Chicken and voice of Chris Griffin on the long-running Family Guy series.
Conceived by noted podcast host, writer and producer Pete Fletzer in 2020 as a way to raise money for Make-A-Wish at the height of the pandemic, Podathon is a virtual fundraising event that features more than a dozen of the top YouTubers and podcasters in the Star Wars fandom.
“The Star Wars community is made up of some of the most generous people I’ve ever met, and the opportunity to leverage the reach of some of the best creators to raise money for charity is a natural synergy for good,” said Fletzer.
Throughout the 14-hour event, content creators will stream their shows featuring guests, personalities and discussions all with a Star Wars connection. In 2021, Podathon raised almost $8,500 for Make-A-Wish. This year’s goal is to collect more than $10,000 for the charity.
