Anthony Padilla is turning his flagship I Spent A Day With YouTube series into a podcast in collaboration with Rooster Teeth’s podcast network, The Roost.
The Roost will work to expand distribution and head up sales for the series across all distribution platforms. In addition to Padilla, The Roost reps podcasts from fellow YouTube creators like Garrett Watts and Andrew Siwicki (Sweet Boys) and Zane Hijazi and Heath Hussar (Unfiltered).
I Spent A Day With sees Padilla sitting down with members of marginalized communities or those who have lived through traumatic or extraordinary circumstances — those suffering from dissociative identity disorder (DID), for instance, or coronavirus survivors. On YouTube, the series has garnered 100 million views to date. And last month, Padilla formed his own production company, Pressalike Productions, which oversees I Spent A Day With and will also develop an original programming slate. Pressalike’s first feature-length documentary is I Maid A Mistake — a spinoff of I Spent A Day With, chronicling Padilla’s exploits at an anime maid cafe.
“Rooster Teeth is an internet mainstay that I’ve grown with in parallel as a creator and producer,” the 33-year-old, who is repped by A3 Artists Agency, said in a statement. “I am thrilled to expand the distribution of my I Spent A Day With series by partnering with their podcast network, The Roost. As I continue to develop the series and branch into new territories, I look forward to working with their team who is committed to supporting my voice and vision.”
