The Podcast Brunch Club (PBC) was started by Adela. It is a community of podcast listeners. Every month, anywhere from 1-5 hours of podcast listening is posted for members to listen to and discuss.
It’s like a book club – but for podcasts!
The Podcast Brunch Club started in March of 2015. Since then, a new theme has been selected for each and every month. Specific podcast episodes that relate to the theme are linked to on the PBC blog. That makes it easy for everyone to find the episodes and listen to them.
The current theme, for July 2016, is “Happy Birthday, America!” The selection of podcast episodes includes one from Radio Diaries, one from In Theory, and another one from Stride & Saunter.
There are two ways to join the Podcast Brunch Club. You can join in person by filing out an inquiry form on the website. There are Podcast Brunch Clubs in Chicago, New York City, San Francisco Bay Area, Washington, D.C., Sydney, Australia, and Geneva Switzerland.
The Chicago Chapter meets for brunch on the last Sunday of every month. Want to start a Podcast Brunch Club in your city? Let them know on the inquiry form.
The other way to join the Podcast Brunch Club is online. The best way to do that is by signing up for the PBC newsletter. You can also follow the PBC on Twitter, friend it on Facebook, and bookmark the blog. Their blog and Facebook group are where PBC members can add comments and have conversations about the episodes of the month.
The Podcast Brunch Club was started when it occurred to Adela how solitary podcast listening is. That experience reminded her of when you read a great book and want to share your thoughts about it with someone else. Those who participle in PBC can share their thoughts about specific podcast episodes each month with a group of people who have also listened to those same episodes.
