Podcast Mixtape

This is a demo, a rough draft, a sample.

Monday nights in The Greene Space we swap studio postproduction for real-time ruckus with tapings of your favorite podcasts, sneaky peeks of unreleased pilots and works-in-progress, conversations with the people who make great tape, and audio experiments of all kinds. Take the earbuds out, grab a drink, and get live with your fellow listeners.

See schedule and tickets below, and watch video of past shows at the bottom of the page. 

 

Upcoming Shows  

 

 

Here's the Thing with Julie K. Brown
Mon, April 8 at 7pm 

 

Join host Alec Baldwin for a live taping of Here's the Thing with Miami Herald journalist Julie K. Brown

In a devastating five-part series, Brown broke the politically explosive story of billionaire and child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein, exposing the sweetheart deal made for him by then-U.S. Attorney and now Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. The story took Brown a year to report and represents the best of shoe-leather reporting: she dug through archives and worked source after source. The event will give a behind-the-scenes view into this fascinating and terrible story.


  

Punderdome: New York's Most Puntastic Competition
Mon, April 15 at 7pm 

 

Punderdome takes over tonight's Podcast Mixtape as they prepare to transition from stage to podcast! Part of New York City's comedy landscape since 2011, Punderdome is a wild and crazy pun competition created by a "Rodney Dangerfield impersonator" and his alleged daughter: Fred and comedian Jo Firestone.

Join Fred Firestone as he hosts a night of competitive, spontaneous pun-making. Six individuals/duos will be selected from sign-ups at the door to compete with six Punderdome Champs for kitchen appliances and "As Seen on TV" items. Pun-masters are chosen by the "Human Clap-O-Meter." Warning for the faint of heart: the 'Dome is a spectator sport. It gets loud. Decide to attend at your own risk!

The Stoop - Live
Mon, May 6 at 7pm 

 

Join us for a live taping of The Stoop, the award-winning podcast that tells stories from across the Black diaspora.

The hosts are proof that Black is not a monolith: Leila Day is African-American, Hana Baba is Sudanese-American. Drawing from their varied life experiences, they dig into the stuff Black people talk about, but not enough. Using journalism, storytelling and the funkiest music around, they explore questions like: Why's it so hard for some Black folk to say, "I love you"? Why'd my Mama really make me stay out of the sun? I'm African, but am I Black? And, what's a hotep anyway?

Join Hana and Leila on The Stoop with special guests to be announced.

Come be a part of the live animated fun as the LOL friends of over 10 years showcase their funny through segments like "Fake News," "Bochinche Bites" and more. With past guests like The Kid Mero, Amara La Negra, Platano Man and Jonathan Fernandez, you can expect this episode's guest to also inspire, inform and ignite the audience.
