Five Things with Nick Quah

Interesting people sharing cool things they love...

Five Things invites some of today’s most talented and successful producers, artists, writers and thinkers to share five things – audio, visuals, books, objects or something else entirely – that have shaped their creative practice over time. Or that inform how they approach their work now. Or, simply enough, that they dig, and want to share with you.

Five Things is an ongoing series at the Podcast Garage hosted by Radiotopia's Julie Shapiro. We're joined this month by Nick Quah, the publisher and editor of Hot Pod.

Tickets are $10 and on sale here. We will have wine, refreshments, and Nick's favorite snacks on hand. Join us before the event from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to meet local audio makers at our monthly Maker Mingle with AIR!



Nick Quah is the publisher and editor of Hot Pod, a newsletter about the podcast industry. He's currently a Visiting Nieman Fellow at Harvard. Pina coladas, long walks on the beach, etc. etc. 




Julie is the executive producer of Radiotopia from PRX - a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven podcasts. From 2014-15, she was the executive producer of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Creative Audio Unit. In 2000 she co-founded the Third Coast International Audio Festival, where as artistic director she prioritized innovative audio and a cross-pollinating international listening culture. Shapiro has taught radio to university students, presented at conferences all over the globe, and produced stories for the airwaves and podcasts in the US and beyond. Find her online at @jatomic.
