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!
A discussion with Juleyka Lantigua-Williams, an all-around podcast powerhouse who is the founder and CEO of Lantigua Williams & Co and hosts a number of shows including How to Talk to [Mamí & Papí] about Anything, which the PBC community listened to as part of the December podcast playlist on Generations. Lantigua Williams & Co is a digital media studio that has a long and impressive roster of podcasts including, Latina to Latina, Birthful, 70 Million, Feeling My Flo, and more.
A discussion with Chris Gethard, the creator behind Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People, or Beautiful/Anonymous for short. The premise of the podcast is this: 1 phone call. 1 hour. No names. No holds barred. Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. And the result is truly the name of the podcast: beautiful stories from anonymous people!
