The Denver podcast scene is alive and vibrant, and this week Bree Coco Davies’ new podcast “Hello? Denver? Are you still there?” premieres during a live recording at the Mutiny Information Café.
For those who have never attended the live recording of a podcast before, it’s like being in the studio audience at your favorite talk show. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and it’ll all be recorded for posterity as part of the podcast’s background track. There’s no stagehand holding up a “Clap Now” sign, but being a part of the creation of a podcast is an exciting experience you’ll love getting to partake in. For NPR listeners, “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me” is a live recorded podcast where audience participation makes it onto the final edited track.
“Hello? Denver? Are you still there?” will be devoted to examining the issues in the Mile High City that are impacting the community. In each episode, Davies will be bringing community influencers, including artists, city planners, non-profit activists, and political strategists, together to discuss perspectives about city and community in a face-to-face setting.
Wednesday’s recording will include artist Molina Speaks, urban planner Yvette Freeman, women’s rights advocate Justine Sandoval, and artist Lauri Lynnxe Murphy for a lively discussion to introduce the new show with an open discussion about what it means to be a Denverite.
New episodes will be recorded each month on the last Thursday of the month at the Mutiny Information Café. If you can’t attend tomorrow, the next recording will take place on December 28. Children are welcome to attend, but expect the possibility of profanity throughout the recording.
