CitySpace At Home: Podcasts Can Be Live Events Too!

Overwhelmed by the magnitude of audio options out there? CitySpace is here to help. The following podcasts all recorded episodes live at our venue. Listen below!

Endless Thread

Endless Thread Presents: Infectious

This event was more of behind-the-scenes look than a live, recorded episode. But the entire series, "Infectious: The Strange Past and Surprising Present of Vaccines — and Anti-Vaxxers," is so good that we thought we’d post the first episode here for you to listen. Listen to all five episodes and then watch the video of the CitySpace event!

Episode: "Bonus: Jon Favreau, Live At CitySpace"

Listen Here

When Jon Favreau, former head speech writer for President Barack Obama, was on tour last year with his podcast "Pod Save America," we asked him to stop by CitySpace to chat with Endless Thread co-host Ben Brock Johnson about podcasts and politics.
