Hello and welcome to a bonus episode of Inside Podcasting! Today we are featuring an episode from the Podcast Brunch Club podcast, in which PBC founder Adela Mizrachi interviews Alie Ward, host of the Ologies pod. Ologies is a show where Ward, who is a humorist and science correspondent, "asks smart people stupid questions and the answers might change your life."  Podcast Brunch Club is more than just a podcast. Every month Adela and her team put out a themed listening list. People listen on their own time and then members gather in real life to discuss the playlist (there is also a virtual chapter).
