SXSW 2019

Reality TV MANIA

We host a podcast called Challenge Mania, which gets thousands of listeners an episode, all of which are obsessed with reality TV, specifically, MTV's The Challenge. Our panel would cover the obsession and interactive experience that viewers and fans have with their favorite reality shows (on MTV, Bravo, CBS, Fox or otherwise) and how they find ways to participate with and follow their favorite personalities OFF the screen, like with podcasts and social media. Panel would be hosted by Scott Yager and Derrick Kosinski (Mutli-season Challenge champion) of the Challenge Mania podcast and feature 2-4 guests from various TV shows.
