Love + Radio Listening Session and Launch Celebration
UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Brooklyn)
$9 suggested donation
A crusader for truth, or, as Karl Rove called him: “a nut with internet access”? Jason Leopold wanted to be a part of something, and that quest brought him through a labyrinthine world of decadent glam metal, dangerous mafioso, love, investigative journalism challenging the heights of government and corporate power, and the collisions of past and present. His story is the subject of the season three premiere of the critically-acclaimed Love + Radio podcast.
Presented publicly for the first time in New York City, this event also celebrates Love + Radio’s debut as a WBEZ podcast. We’ll feature a mind-blowing hour-long audio screening, followed by Q+A and ample celebration.
WBEZ’s Love + Radio features intimate interviews with an eclectic range of subjects from the seedy to the sublime, permeated by music and otherworldly production. It won the top prize at the 2011 Third Coast Festival Competition (often described as the “Sundance of public radio”), the first podcast to do so in the competition’s 11-year history.
