Our inaugural AudioLounge event will be with Emily Prokop, producer of The Story Behind, a podcast that presents the extraordinary history behind the ordinary. Curious about the origins of Valentine’s Day candy hearts? Ever wonder why the four-leaf clover is considered good luck? Is knowing the origin of sunglasses something you never knew you wanted to know until right now? You’re in luck with The Story Behind Podcast, a weekly journey into trivia presented in a fun way.
The Story Behind has been a bit of a success story for Emily, garnering a 2019 Webby nomination for Best Podcast Series and earning listeners from many countries around the globe. We’re excited to hear Emily’s take on the podcasting world, her personal journey through podcast production, and her sonic inspirations.
This is going to be a great event for those of you who are new to the world of podcasting. There will be an audience Q&A towards the end of our conversation so that you can have the chance to learn from an established producer the tricks of the trade!
The event will be held on June 6th at 7PM at Willimantic Records (75 Bridge Street, Willimantic). It’ll be free with donations towards upgrading our future live events surely appreciated.
