Once a month, KCUR holds a podcast listening party in the Buffalo Room at the Westport Flea Market. Join us!

The Audiofiles look at some of the best new podcasts of 2016, from the serious (mental illness, embedded journalists) to the lighthearted (a discussion of the Baby-Sitters Club books).

Guests:

If you like to learn about the inner lives of musicians, as though they're the friends or older siblings who are way cooler than you, then music podcasts might just be your thing. This show compiles great music podcasts with an emphasis on the musician-interview approach, plus a handful of new, non-music podcasts to refresh your general playlist. Timed in anticipation of KCUR's upcoming Podcast Party featuring Central Standard and The Grisly Hand. 

Guests:

At our recent Podcast Party we asked Kansas City to redesign our city's flag.

Our inspiration was a very popular episode of the podcast 99% Invisible called "Vexillonaire" (a play on vexillology, or the study of flags).
