PodcastClub 36: Migration

location Baderbräu | 5 PM-7 PM Sunday 18 March 2018 (CDT)


It is March, when a myriad of seasonal cues drive the arctic terns to use their endless days of Antarctic sunlight in irrepressible preparation for the northward leg of their pole to pole journey. It would be satisfying if I could honestly say the lengthening Chicago-days prompted, instinctually, my choice of listening list topic. But, in truth, the true origin of my topic choice was an excuse to include an episode of Threshold, one of my favorite podcasts of 2017. So I started poking around to build a full-fledged migration-theme and found many unexpected podcasts, most from podcasters I had never listened to before. I really like how these selections interact with each other and I hope you will enjoy the mix as well.

In a recent survey of #PodcastClub members, it was agreed that hearing different perspectives was something we are getting right as a group. With that in mind, I didn’t worry too much after creating a listening list that might be considered long-winded and esoteric, with a risk of being a little boring. Because, for better or worse, if you want to hear something that truly comes from my personal perspective, it will probably be long-winded, esoteric, and perhaps sometimes, but hopefully not too often, a little boring. And March might just be the perfect month for such a list. We have many long nights remaining before that first watery trill of the red-winged blackbird announces spring’s arrival and we might as well use a few of them to listen to podcasts.

Thank You- “Michael”
