“On 9/10, find out what it’s like to be a living legend!,” Smith tweeted on Aug. 29.

SModCastle is Smith’s podcast theater, named after his own SModcast podcast (the first two letters stand for Smith and co-host Scott Mosier) and his SModcast Podcast Network. It opened this summer and bills itself as “New Jersey’s Only Podcast Theater.”
