The Fest Presents: The Longform Podcast with special guest Zoe Chace

The Longform Podcast

The Longform Podcast, a weekly show featuring one-on-one interviews with some of the world’s finest contemporary nonfiction storytellers, makes its intimate Chicago debut. Join co-host Max Linsky in conversation with This American Life producer Zoe Chace for an exclusive live taping.

After a brief stint as a special education teacher, Zoe started her radio career at NPR and quickly rose through the ranks to become a reporter for Planet Money, covering everything from how regulators hold big banks accountable for bad behavior to how much a Katy Perry album really costs. In 2015, Zoe became a producer at This American Life, and jumped on the politics beat, following the 2016 presidential election largely through the prism of the Republican Party.

Max and Zoe will dive into reporting in the current political climate, why people just can’t get over female voices on the radio, and what she wants to do with the rest of her life.

The Longform Podcast is presented as part of The Fest curated by Third Coast International Audio Festival, and with media sponsorship from WBEZ. The Fest is a spectacular two-week lineup of live podcasts in Chicago this November.

This November, Third Coast International Audio Festival presents The Fest: two weeks of podcasts live on-stage, in venues across Chicago.

Since 2000, Third Coast has been a leading curator of audio storytelling and has supported generations of makers around the world. Check out our library of sound-rich stories, our podcasts, the annual Third Coast Conference, and more.
