We're starting a book club, but with a difference. We're going to include podcasts and articles, fiction and non-fiction, short stories and TV series. You know, all the huge amounts of content that we're all now consuming and that we want to so desperately talk about. So if you caught Big Little Lies, or read Cat Person, or followed S-Town, or something equally as brilliant and amazing that you want to share, then this is your forum.
Our new monthly Culture Club is for everyone, whether you see yourself as an avid consumer of new ideas and content, a seeker of new writers and voices, or just someone who is driven by curiosity and conversation.
We're setting the first session for a mellow Sunday evening get together at The Indie Alley, and for this inaugural meeting of our new Culture Club, we're choosing a podcast.
SESSION 1: EAR HUSTLE
For our first Culture Club session, we’ve selected the podcast Ear Hustle. Made in Marin at San Quentin prison, Ear Hustle is a collaboration between inmates Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams, and the SF artist Nigel Poor, that brings stories from inside the prison to the public outside. We were hooked from the first episode, not surprising since it regularly featured on the Best Podcasts of 2017 lists.
There’s only one season available (Season 2 is out on March 17th) so try to listen to as many as possible before our first Culture Club meeting. We listen to podcasts when we drive, go for a walk, catch up on ironing, so make those lost hours of travel and housework count. And if you can read some of the press links there’s a ton of great context here. We have lots to say about Ear Hustle and we’re sure you do too. See you at our first Culture Club!
