Listening out in the world
Third Coast listening events (often called "Listening Rooms") present unforgettable audio work in a public setting -- a theater, a coffee shop, a bar -- anywhere with a good set of speakers and where people can gather together and listen. Each event features a special guest and includes a diverse selection of documentary audio work. It’s a little like a book club for radio.
Also! Have docs, will travel. In fact, Have docs, love to travel. The TCF also sponsors and supports other types of audio events in Chicago and beyond. Want us to visit your city or town? Collaborate with your organization? Let us know.

A man in the KKK threatens a rabbi. Then the rabbi befriends him.
A young orthodox man leaves behind family. But can't bring himself to part with his payos.
A sport that features the tallest of men, was started by the shortest. Who knew?
These are just some of stories you'll hear when the Third Coast Festival and JRC team up for an evening of unforgettable stories about Jewish life and times. Join us for listening, discussion, and a nosh (of course!) Your guides for the evening are Gwen Macsai, JRC member and host of TCF's Re:sound and Rabbi Brant Rosen.
