Podcast Club

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:30 pm on day Fourth of the month, happening 5 times

Join us for the SCHS Podcast Club! If you like the idea of book clubs, but don’t have the time to read, or if you enjoy podcasts and are looking for new content and a group to share your thoughts, this is the program for you. Similar to our book clubs, we’ll listen to a selection of podcasts and meet in person to discuss them. Each month we’ll focus on a different topic, listening to podcasts which fit that theme. Guest facilitators will join us in our discussions, helping us find connections to Schenectady and our local history. The group will meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month, January through May, at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave. Contact Marietta Carr, our librarian, to sign up! Marietta’s email is librarian@schenectadyhistorical.org and her phone number is 518-374-0263, option 3. This program is limited to 12 people. It's free to take part, but open only to Schenectady County Historical Society members.   Dates: -Jan. 25 – at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave -Feb. 22 – at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave -Mar. 22 – at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave -Apr. 26 – at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave -May 24 – at 6:30 at 32 Washington Ave
