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.
