LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading podcast network PodcastOne, a subsidiary of LiveXLive Media, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), has signed internationally-known sisters, Sistine and Sophia Stallone, to an exclusive podcast and vodcast production and distribution deal. The Stallone Sisters' show, "UNWAXED," features the sisters discussing adulting, pop culture, their single lives, their careers as actresses, models, and lifestyle influencers and their unique experiences as part of one of Hollywood's most prominent families, while sometimes featuring very familiar faces for in-studio interviews. The Stallone Sisters are set to bring their classic older-younger sibling dynamic to audio and visual life on August 25, 2020 on PodcastOne, as well as wherever else podcasts are heard. The live stream video broadcast, coined a "vodcast," is available on www.livexlive.com.
"We are extremely grateful to the PodcastOne family and Norm Pattiz," said the duo. "We can't wait to share our voice and entertain listeners worldwide!"
The Stallone Sisters' "UNWAXED" joins a rapidly growing slate of podcast and vodcast programming for PodcastOne and LiveXLive alongside "Feels Good" from social media superstars Amanda Cerny and Jacqueline Fernandez, "Too Tired to be Crazy" from meme queen Violet Benson, and "The Adam Carolla Show" hosted by comedian Adam Carolla. It also adds to the fast-growing Vodcast Network that LiveXLive and PodcastOne launched in early summer 2020 as a programming and viewing destination for video podcast formats.
"I've known Sophia and Sistine since they were babies. Well they're not babies anymore," said Executive Chairman of PodcastOne, Norm Pattiz. "They're smart, accomplished young women with fans and followers who will be attracted to their totally unique podcast on PodcastOne. Their streaming vodcast joins our Vodcast Network available on the LiveXLive platform and app. This is very exciting for not only the company, but for me personally."
As the daughters of Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone and model and successful entrepreneur Jennifer Flavin, Sistine and Sophia Stallone grew up immersed in the entertainment and fashion industries. Sistine starred in her first feature film, "47 Meters Down: Uncaged," in 2019 and has graced the covers of magazines such as Town & Country, Harper's Bazaar, Elle Russia, Grazia, Dujour, and more. As a model Sistine's extensive advertising campaigns include work for Express, Smashbox Cosmetics, Dolce & Gabbana, and Chanel Beauty.

From adulting to single life and crazy stories including exciting guests joining in on the chaos, this is cheaper than a therapist, less judgmental than your best friend, and more painless than a wax.
