The Third Coast Conference convenes in the Chicago area for three days each fall. Radio producers, podcasters, journalists, documentarians, audio artists, and students come together, listen to each other’s work, share ideas and expertise, and make priceless connections with future colleagues and new friends. Sessions and discussions cover the art and craft of audio storytelling, and all include plenty of listening.

The weekend culminates with an awards ceremony honoring the winners of the Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.

All sessions are recorded and available in our Audio Library and on the Third Coast Pocket Conference podcast, the start of your next great story!
