Like Book Club, But For Podcasts!
Podcast Brunch Club (PBC) is bringing the book club concept to podcasts. Sick of the eye rolls when you start every other sentence with “so, I heard on a podcast…”? We get you. Join PBC – you can participate both in person and online. We are a global group of podcast listeners who simply want to talk about the amazing audio content we’re listening to!
There are in-person chapters in 50+ cities across 5 continents, so join one or start your own!
Every month one of our members chooses a theme and curates a podcast playlist that includes 3-5 episodes. At some point during the month, our chapters around the world will meet up in person to discuss what they heard (like book club, but for podcasts!).
Let's listen together!

I sat down with Jack Delaney, the creator of The Neon Noir, to find out more.
Health insurance and the cost of healthcare in the US is complicated, to say the least. Coverage, co-pays, in-network, out-of-network, HSAs, deductibles, and universal codes: it seems like you need a PhD just to figure out how much you’ll be charged to get a checkup (let alone get treatment for a life-threatening illness). Dan Weissmann knows this first-hand. He quit his insurance-providing job to do his own thing and in the process he has found himself navigating the healthcare minefield. He’s documenting this journey, talking to experts, and telling patient stories on his new podcast, An Arm and a Leg. Dan was kind enough to give me some of his time to tell me more about his podcast.
