Share:

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading podcast platform PodcastOne, a subsidiary of LiveXLive Media, Inc. (NASDAQ:LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), and consumer advocate and environmental activist Erin Brockovich, have exclusively joined forces on "Superman's Not Coming with Erin Brockovich", a weekly podcast that celebrates everyday people who realize that they had to rise up and join the fight. The podcast is available beginning today, August 21, 2020, on PodcastOne, as well as Apple, Spotify, and wherever else podcasts are heard.

The new podcast titled, "Superman's Not Coming with Erin Brockovich", brings a dynamic female voice speaking to activism and making a change in the world, further strengthening the slate of woman-led programming that PodcastOne offers audiences. Scheduled guests on the anticipated podcast include actress and activist Ellen Page and social scientist Ingrid Waldron, Senator Barbara Boxer, Congressman Dan Kildee, President of Environmental Working Group Ken Cook, and Co-Founder & Executive Director of Sunrise Movement, Varshini Prakash.

The podcast coincides with the release of Brockovich's latest book of the same name. Superman's Not Coming is Brockovich's deep dive into America's ongoing water crisis but it's also a field manual for active citizenship. The book teaches how to get organized and take on any issue. It's being published by Pantheon Books, Knopf Doubleday on August 25, 2020.

"In a year that has seen the biggest movements for social justice, policy reform and activism in modern times, "Superman's Not Coming" is set to give audiences the type of podcast they've been demanding and yearning for.  Our partnership with Erin Brockovich, the pioneer of accountability-crusading, is going to set the tone for revolutionary programming across podcast networks," said PodcastOne CEO, Peter Morris.

Launched into international notoriety by the acclaimed award-winning eponymous film "Erin Brockovich" from director Steven Soderberg, Brockovich went from unknown legal researcher to activism icon by showcasing how her dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical lawsuit settlement in United States history. Since then, Brockovich has continued to fight hard and support and celebrate the individuals who battle injustice. 

"My life's work has been to inspire and empower people to use their voices to stop injustice. "Superman's Not Coming" isn't about me, it's about the local heroes who are making a difference and together with PodcastOne we're going to help make their voices heard," said Erin Brockovich.

Brockovich's show adds to PodcastOne's growing list of podcasts aimed to inspire and empower women and joins hugely successful and lauded lineup of female focused shows "Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe", "The LadyGang" with hosts Keltie Knight, Becca Tobin and Jac Vanek, and "Heather Dubrow's World" and "Gals on the Go."
