This group is for anyone who loves listening to podcasts and wants to discuss and share their favorites. Podcast have grown so much as a medium the last few years and I thought it would be nice to have a discussion group. This is like a book club except for podcasts! We meet at coffee show, bars, the park, etc. in the west town area to discuss a particular podcast show or a single episode of a podcast.
1.5-2 hour meet up with Semi-Structured format (introductions, discussion of podcast, recommendations for others/what are you listening to).
For this first inaugural meetup, we will be discussing the highly popular podcast show “Homecoming” season 1 at Dallop bakeshop located at 1000 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60622 at 230pm.
Depending on the number of folks who show up, we will spend approx. 10 min for introductions, an hour or so to discuss the show and then 20-30 minutes having people talk about what they are currently listening to and what podcast we should cover next time.
Before it was an amazon show starring Julia Roberts, this was a podcast created by Gimlet media. Homecoming centers on a caseworker at an experimental facility, her ambitious supervisor, and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life — presented in an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations. The result is an innovative, immersive audio experience. Homecoming stares Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, Amy Sedaris, and David Cross.
Please listen to all of season 1 of the show before we meetup to discuss. Below is a link to the show or you can type homecoming in your favorite podcast app.
Please join the group and RSVP! Looking forward to it!
