Neighborhood Storytelling through Podcasts

Note: This is a private event for attendees of the conference Listening to the City: Engagement, Exploration + Intervention through Sound. We will be streaming the event live on our Facebook page.

What does a podcast based on a place sound like? There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts in the iTunes store, but no way to search by geography (city, town, or neighborhood). Despite that challenge, many producers are making podcasts that tell stories about and capture sounds of their communities.

During this Listening Party, we'll listen to audio clips from three podcasts that examine a physical or cultural geography. After listening, we'll have a discussion with the producers/hosts of these shows and learn how podcasting can encourage conversation and engagement on a local level.
