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.
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!
In this episode, we’re joined by Heather Welch, the leader of our chapter in Wellington, New Zealand. Heather and other members of the Wellington chapter curated our listening list on Nuclear Power. For the last 8 years, Heather has lived off the grid and documents her off-grid journey on her podcast, Sunshine & PowerCuts.
