Edge of Fame, a new podcast collaboration between WBUR and The Washington Post, is a sound-rich, story-driven examination of the life that happens before, behind, and beyond the spotlight.

Blending in-depth interviews with off-the-cuff field recordings, host Geoff Edgers paints intimate, surprising audio portraits of actors, musicians and comedians: from beloved performers you think you already know, like Saturday Night Live veteran Darrell Hammond, to up-and-comers bursting onto the scene, like author, actor and comedian Ms. Pat.

You’ll learn who these individuals really are: where they come from, what drives them to create, and what keeps them up at night. Other podcasts might cover artists; Geoff Edgers uncovers them.
