In 2011, when Nowhere California first took to the digital airwaves, podcasts were a relatively uncharted territory. Today, as our founder Joshua Gilmore so eloquently puts it; "You can't throw a rock without hitting a new podcast and damaging your computer." What began as a passion of two lifelong friends, Nowhere California quickly evolved into a four man operation that has attended movie premiers, covered top industry conventions, and has conducted interviews with talent that spans the pop culture spectrum. Six years later and Nowhere California has branched out onto FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, and our very own website. in six years, Nowhere California has gone from a listening audience of a few friends to over 45,000 plays in the U.S. as well as the U.K., Australia, Germany, and even a few in Russia.
The entire Nowhere California team are prepared for the journey ahead and there will be no need for a cheat code or Game Genie to speed this adventure along. We will be ready for the boss stages and we are ready to level up the world of Nowhere California through these following goals..
LEVEL 1- CLEAR SAILING FOR 2018.. This is a simple goal to reach and will allow Nowhere California to have a stress free entry into the upcoming year. This goal will allow us to pay for the website and podcast memory. Also, if we can jump this hurdle, Nowhere California can return to the road and kick a few doors open in our evolution.
LEVEL 2- GEAR FOR THE ROAD..(Stretch Goal- $100.00) We have reached LEVEL 2 and we are looking to improve our interviews from the road. This goal is simple, we want to upgrade our digital recorder and add some clip-on microphones to our conversations.
In the beginning, there was a lot of things and, for the Nowhere California team, our world started with some insanity behind a microphone. In this section, you will have the opportunity to listen to some specially selected episodes from Nowhere’s past.
Episode 81- R.A.R.E or Rage Against Rebooting Entertainment
-- The guys from Nowhere take a look at Hollywood’s current obsession with the past. In this episode the team attempts to take a look at the past, present, and future of reboots. Also, the discussion delves into the reason why a "reboot" can expose a lot of different emotions.
Episode 97- The Crossroads Of Logic And Insanity..

WHY NOT #17- Why Not The Birdcage?

In the edition of “Why Not?” the guys from Nowhere take a special look at the 1996 Robin Williams classic “The Birdcage”
The normal or (in some cases) abnormal episodes of Nowhere California are the foundation of this universe. The guys from Nowhere have expanded and built upon this foundation over the years. These expansions have taken many forms, but for the case of this section we will focus on the interviews from Nowhere’s past.
When the chance to break into the world of conventions and conduct interviews presented itself, the team took upon themselves to stay away from the boring interview structures and focus on the conversation.
In this section, you will be able to listen to some selected conversation for the Nowhere California catalogue.
Nowhere California Presents Our Conversation With Heather Langenkamp
This conversation took place at the 2013 Day of the Dead convention in Los Angeles and this convention happened to be the team’s first adventure into the world of convention coverage. The guys from Nowhere had a lot of highlights from this convention and this is one of the big ones. In this conversation the guys from Nowhere talk with the legendary Heather Langenkamp, Nancy Thompson from the iconic 1984 “A Nightmare On Elm Street”
Nowhere California Presents Our Conversation With Rob Paulsen
This conversation took place at the 2013 Long Beach Comic And Horror Convention, which was the second convention on the Nowhere California resume. During this event the team talked with voice talent legend, Rob Paulsen. The conversation ranges from his amazing career in the world of animation to his WTF moment on the set of “Body Double” and everything in between.
Nowhere California Presents Our Coverage Of The Queen Gorya Pilot Premiere Party
At the 2013 Los Angeles Days of the Dead Convention the guys from Nowhere met Satu and Steve J Palmer. They were in attendance to promote their project known as "Queen Gorya" and the guys from Nowhere fell in love with this project. Since that chance meeting, a friendship has continued and a pilot has been made. In this installment of Nowhere California Presents, Phil and Josh cover the world premiere of the Queen Gorya pilot.

Risks and challenges
As dramatic as it would sound to say that our future hinges on the success of this campaign, fortunately it does not. The real risk here is just to our pride (and perhaps Josh's sanity). We WILL continue to press on should we not reach our goal but it would make our future something much more manageable. That is why we reach out to you, our fans, or perhaps the passerby that believes in a homegrown project, to lend us a hand so we can continue doing what we love and what we love sharing with you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
