The Young and the Restless is continuing its 50th anniversary celebration in fine style. Deadline reports that the CBS soap is launching an audio showcast. The showcast will debut September 30, also the official start of Y&R's 50th season.
Showcast episodes will premiere each weekday at 3:30 PM EST, and you can get them on any platform you use to stream podcasts. This unique format is also a throwback to the genre's audio origins; Y&R will be the first and sole network soap to have a showcast.
Steve Raizes, EVP of podcasting and audio for Paramount, stated:
We are thrilled to be launching The Young and the Restless as a showcast. As we continue to expand our podcast offerings, we find shows that share a deeply passionate fanbase translate well into the audio space. We’ve seen significant success with this strategy with The Late Show Pod Show with Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show: Ears Edition and expect similar results with The Young and the Restless.
