Bourbon 'n BrownTown
Bourbon ‘n BrownTown (AKA "BnB") is SoapBox Production and Organizing’s affiliate podcast which pairs critical analyses of media, culture, politics, and everyday happenings with the tastiest of spirits. With the occasional help of Chicago’s most talented and creative activists, filmmakers, academics, and social entrepreneurs, BrownTown (friends and SoapBox colleagues Caullen Hudson and David A. Moran) unpacks current events, social issues, and gives personal insight into various topics.
Patreon Patreon is a patronage, or membership-based, service for artists and creators that allows them generate predictable, recurring revenue without giving up creative control to a larger entity. This includes a tiered membership system with different perks; think IndieGogo/Kickstarter but a continuous monthly contributions as low as $1 (see below).
New Patron Goal to Release Original Ep. 8.3! Thank you to those who have already become Bourbon ’n BrownTown Patrons! In our push to get more support, we will release the raw, original recording of Episode 8.3 - Sexism in Mixed Company to all Patrons once we reach either $100/month OR 15 Patrons, whichever comes first!
If you've listened to 8.3 as it stands, David and Caullen debrief from the experimental recording of six men and women to discuss the content of 8.1 and 8.2 on sexism, patriarchy, feminism, and toxic masculinity. Due to the unexpected, practical interruption that led the original conversation awry, we only played certain parts of the original recording, commenting on its broader impact.
