Podcast Book Club - Awful Grace, or The Tolling of the Void Bell

First of all, what is this event? It's like a book club, but for podcasts. Every month, we choose a different show, listen to it independently, then come together to talk about it. It's a ton of fun, I promise.

This month we're listening to Awful Grace, or The Tolling of The Void Bell. And yes, that is the full name of the podcast. AGOTTOTVB is difficult to describe. Some episodes are non-narrated stories from interesting individuals. Others are non-narrated essay collages. All of them are serious works of dramatic non-fiction that demand attention.

I've listened to almost all of the episodes at this point, so I can confidently say we're going to have plenty to talk about. I'm going to link to a few of my favorite episodes here, but feel free to recommend others in the comments.

Oh, and I feel I should say, every episode I've listened to has dealt with some pretty serious topics. Some have been quite unsettling. You have been warned.

Possible discussion questions: Is this the best podcast ever? What exactly is this show doing that makes it sound so different? What do you make of the format changes? What are the elements that carry across the different formats? Is this style of sound design too much, not enough, or just right?
