Spotify announced today that they are producing a new podcast starring Kevin Bacon. I’m Gonna Be Kevin Bacon is the new podcast coming from Spotify that comes in the news of Spotify’s big podcast push.
Earlier this month, Spotify announced the former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama are coming to their platform with a new podcast as well.
I’m Gonna Be Kevin Bacon is a podcast starring Kevin Bacon as himself and a character that was bumped from Footloose and spends the rest of his life trying to track down Bacon. The podcast is created by Funny or Die.
On why Bacon agreed to do the podcast, “I thought Dan’s voice was really funny,” Bacon tells THR, explaining that he signed onto the podcast after Abramson approached him with the idea. “He just makes me laugh.”
