We’ll listen to a buzzed-about episode over drinks, then hear the episode’s creators discuss the ins and outs of how it was made with The New York Times editorial director of audio Samantha Henig.
Why does purple taste so good? In this edition, we’ll talk with Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings, hosts of The Nod, and executive producer Sarah Abdurrahman about how the grape flavor came to have sentimental significance for Black Americans.

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.
