The Sound Diet Podcast features scenes, secretly recorded personal phone calls, and music performances from 'Laurie Stanton’s Sound Diet', a live show recorded in New York City's Magnet Theater. The show is inspired equally by the dark, unfriendly and morally ambiguous honesty of radio pioneer Joe Frank, and the pleasant, nostalgic humility and foot-stomping fun of Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion. Sound Diet is hosted by Laurie Stanton, a New York City Librarian who brings us scenes filled with unique contradictions, incisive playfulness, and humorous humor. The acting ensemble comes from stage, screen and television, joining several times a year to make the sold out crowd laugh, shift uncomfortably as they examine their lives in a new way, and finish their beers. But mostly laugh and drink. Laurie Stanton’s Sound Diet is a co-production with Sound Diet Productions (sounddietradio.com) and Magnet Theater (magnettheater.com).
