Chicago-based Third Coast Festival and London’s In the Dark will conduct a spirited live conversation into matters meaningful and mundane – armed only with radio shorts. This radiophonic call and response could (and will) go anywhere – from stories of existential crisis and technology, to sea-monsters and the simple pleasure of a takeaway croissant sandwich. Might this sonic sojourn solve some of life’s greatest riddles? We can’t be sure, but at the very least we promise you’ll leave with your ears (and bellies, that’s the “Sweet” part) well nourished.
