Do you think the word ‘podcast’ is kinda dumb BUT full of potential for amazing storytelling you can’t hear on the radio? Did you listen to all of Serial (OBSESSIVELY, am I rite?!), but had no idea where to turn next? Have you run out of This American Life episodes and feeling like life just got so empty? Or do you just love Gamut Room events because that’s where college memories are made (shout out, WOMP!)??? OR JUST WANT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then you BEST be at Podcast Therapy, an event being hosted by Third Coast International Audio Festival and the Meet the Press series, TODAY IN THE GAMUT ROOM!
Maya Goldber-Safir ‘12.5, who is presently employed by the Third International Coast Audio Festival (check this out!) writes in to explain the event, as she’s gonna be the star (that is, besides all of you!):
Podcasts have been shown to rejuvenate your walk to Bihall, enliven your Megabus trips, and bring the best of audio storytelling straight to your back pocket. But… HOW do you choose what to listen to?
Maya Goldberg-Safir ‘12.5, licensed Podcast Therapist™ from the Third Coast International Audio Festival, is here to help. As a highly trained listener with a huge medicine cabinet of audio delights, she responds to whatever you need advice on using… podcasts!
Plus! Dr. Goldberg-Safir is joined by Alex Kapelman and Whitney Jones, co-producers of the independent podcast Pitch, named by Slate Magazine as one of the best music podcasts of 2014.
This event is going to be really, really good. Better than the bar, or whatever pre-game for the bar might conflict. Better than Proctor dinner. SO COME.

Place: Gamut Room
Cost: Nada! ALL are welcome!!!
