Sara and Adela discuss the Conversation listening list, which was curated for the PBC community by the one-and-only Adam Grant! The episodes included on the list were from Invisibilia, How’s Work? With Esther Perel, The Upgrade by Lifehacker, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, and WorkLife with Adam Grant. The episodes all had a theme of vulnerability and confrontation running through them. Then, they diverge to talk about other podcast recommendations.
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 70+ 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!
An interview with Wendy Zukerman, the host of the amazing Science Vs podcast. In normal days, Science Vs looks at fads and trends from the lens of science to help listeners suss out what is evidence-based. Since January 2020, meaning in these pandemic times, Wendy and the rest of the Science Vs has done some fantastic reporting on Coronavirus and upped their production schedule to putting out two episodes per week to help answer listener questions about the virus.
In this episode, we’re joined by Andi Paradise, the former leader of our chapter in Santa Cruz, California. Back in January, we learned that Andi was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was given 6-24 months to live. To honor Andi and her contribution to PBC, we dedicated our March 2020 listening list on Happiness to her. In this episode, we talk to Andi about her life, her legacy, and her thoughts about happiness.
