Adela and Sara discuss the podcast playlist on Language, which included episodes from The Allusionist, Ologies, Twenty Thousand Hertz, and Hidden Brain. Then, as usual, they diverge from the assigned listening list to talk about the recent Podcast Brunch Club meetings that happened in Houston and Chicago and some of the recommendations that came out of those meetings.
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 60+ cities across 6 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!).
We have a virtual chapter that meets via video conference every month. We also encourage online conversations through the Facebook Group, Twitter, Reddit, and by participating in the community commentary segments on the PBC podcast.
Let's listen together!

Instead, some are taking it all in stride and figuring out how to rewrite the definition of working mom on their terms. Journalist Katherine Goldstein started The Double Shift to tell those stories and shine a light on the experience of being a working mother in 2019.
Like a lot of people, Mila Atmos felt discouraged after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She saw political discourse falling to a new low and devolving from civil disagreements into people shouting at each other on cable news. She also saw a lack of civic engagement on all sides of the political spectrum. She started her podcast Future Hindsight as a way to bring more people to the table for civic engagement and civil discourse.
A year ago, Podcast Brunch Club members worldwide met to discuss the Looking for Love podcast playlist. Well, it’s February again and while we’re not covering the topic of love for our regularly monthly theme, I thought it would be fun to do a community-curated podcast list on the theme of love and dating. Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the PBC Facebook Group.
