QOD –Anyone Interested In a Podcast Listening Group?

Mainly, I am looking to gauge interest in listening to the new Crooked Media podcast “The Wilderness” and then talking about that here.

The podcast is 15 episodes long and we could listen to one a week and discuss here on a thread dedicated to it. So far, each episode is between 40 mins and 55 mins long, so it is not a big investment of time and they have released 5 episodes so far.

What do you think? Would you want to listen and then talk about these ideas here?

    Well I’ve listened to all five episodes, so I’m down to discuss them

  2. I am about to listen to the Wilderness over the next couple of days, so I will bookmark this and come back to offer my thoughts. I am an avid podcast listener, and my interests divide almost evenly between politics and true crime. Here is my current podcast list:

      The Wilderness is being released one episode per week, so it will take some time to get through. My thought is that I would put up a post with some questions/thoughts and those who heard it could talk about it. If we like this experience, we could pick a more regular podcast and do the same thing.

      I love Pod Save America.

  3. I don’t listen to podcasts – my mind wanders – but I’m willing to do this!

      Yay! This one is only 15 episodes, so there will be an end. I have NPR on almost all day, so more talking doesn’t bother me. I am a fan of listening to these while flying or on a long drive. Beats looking for a radio station.

  4. I’m all in! Can’t wait.

    • cassandram

      Thanks! We’re gonna keep this discussion on topic — no whataboutism. There’s a good deal of interesting (and somewhat painful) history here.

  5. Count me in too!

    Guests like:

    David FRUM
    David PLOUFFE
    Eric HOLDER

    are those who led us into “The Wilderness” and ain’t interested in gettin’ us out of it.

    But I’ll kick in my 2 cents.

    So we’ll start discussion on Monday. And I think a new one drops on Monday so start listening! Hopefully we can talk about the six episodes next week and be ready Monday after next to talk about the new one.

    Thanks for your interest, everyone!

    You can listen to this podcast via Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play or any podcast catcher (I use Podcast Addict on my phone) via the RSS link on the Wilderness site. Let me know if you need help in setting this up.
