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.
