The 11th is a podcast that publishes an entirely new issue on the 11th of every month. Inspired by the experience of opening a magazine you love every month and not knowing exactly what you will get, but trusting that something engaging and true will be there waiting for you. Many stories aren’t meant to be a 10-part series and don’t fit the format of a weekly show. The 11th is a home for those in-between ideas. Made up of reported series and personal journeys, fiction and musicals, deep investigative journalism and intimate conversations. Each issue, a different voice. Every month, something new.

    His Saturn Return

    His Saturn Return

    This month, The 11th presents: His Saturn Return. Creator, writer, and performer Sai Sion lets us peek into his expansive imagination with this cosmic audio drama that will transport you across the galaxy.
    We travel through time and space to meet Duran Durag on the brink of his Saturn Return. He’s cocky and charming, smooth and clumsy. If it weren’t for his fancy durag and his family name, Duran wouldn’t be given the time of day. And it’s high time for him to learn some important life lessons. The all-knowing DJ Saturn is not playing when he sends this young space alien on a series of challenges that reveal what it is to live in a universe that doesn’t orbit around ego. Will the missions he’s sent on ground him, or will his swagger get in the way of growing up?

    Walking Tours for Your Home

    Walking Tours for Your Home

    This month, a collaboration with McSweeney's Quarterly Concern and Radiotopia. Several writers, producers, and artists were asked to take on the concept of an audio tour, but instead of guiding us through a city or a museum, they guide us through our own homes. These tours are interactive, and intimate. They are a trip not just through the physical space of your home, but the memories and feelings associated with that space.

    These pieces are part of McSweeney's Audio Issue. The Audio Issue comes packaged as a physical box where all audio pieces have an accompanying physical component. You can purchase the entire issue here: https://store.mcsweeneys.net/products/mcsweeneys64

    A Very Good Question

    A Very Good Question

    When she was a kid, Lina Misitzis heard a line in a movie that really stuck. She’d repeat it to friends and family, drop it in texts and conversations mindlessly. But then, twenty years later, she realized: The line doesn’t make any sense.
    This month, not a bedtime story exactly, but a story about bedtime. About saying goodnight.

    The Happiness Project

    Charles Spearin is a long-time member of the band Broken Social Scene. In 2007, he was on paternity leave, spending time with his kids on the playground, talking with his neighbors. That’s when he started noticing the musical quality of the voices around him.
    He asked his neighbors to come over to his house so he could interview them. And then he turned their voices into songs.

Set the bar to high

I was so intrigued by this podcast. The first series was fantastic--so well made and well reported. I worry that they set the bar too high for themselves because everything that's followed has been just ok. I wonder how long this will survive. Hoping for more like the first series!

So well written, performed, and produced!

His Saturn Return was such a fun ride! The story was interesting, queer, soulful, and wholesome.

Gotchayeah ,

Disappointing
