South by Southwest wrapped up last weekend, but "I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast" hosts Omar L. Gallaga, Addie Broyles and Tolly Moseley are still recounting the buzzy bands, blockbuster films and chance encounters with celebrities and everyday fest-goers that made this year’s festival so memorable.
While the 10-day event was still fresh in their minds, they invited staffers into the studio to share what they took away from this year's festival and shared their own highlights, from catching Steven Spielberg in person to covering Rachael Ray's Feedback, the biggest food event of the festival.
Multimedia producer Alyssa Vidales spent a lot of the festival on the red carpet interviewing the celebrities behind "Isle of Dogs," "Ready Player One" and the latest "Star Wars" movie, and she learned that all of them love talking about Austin and Austin food. She shared some of her favorite clips from those red carpet interviews and talked about why being a fan of so many aspects of pop culture comes in handy during SXSW.
On this week’s Webb Report, Austin360 producer Eric Webb chatted with Omar and Addie about one of the most unusual shows at SXSW this year, an eight-hour concert meant to put its audience to sleep. Webb explained why it was OK to sleep at this concert and how the experience changed how he thinks about his own sleep habits.
In our Toast recommendation segment, Omar squeezed in one more SXSW highlight: Watching Terrence Malick's new VR debut called "Together," a short film that viewers experience in the immersive environment of virtual reality. Having just returned from a long spring break road trip, Tolly recommended both Caprock Canyons State Park in the Panhandle and "Seeing White," a 14-part podcast series from Scene on Radio, a documentary project from Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. Addie suggested family adventures to new grocery stores, which is one activity that has been keeping her and her sons busy this spring.
