The 11th

The 11th

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.

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.

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.

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.

This month on the 11th, three people spend several hours (sometimes days) just sitting in one place. Watching. Listening. A cemetery in Virginia… a cafe in New York… a plaza in Mexico… It’s inspired by the book An Attempt At Exhausting A Place in Paris, by French author Georges Perec, who wrote that “nothing is happening all the time.” But what’s happening when nothing is happening? Something is happening, right? Exhausting A Place...

For 30 years The Landmark Forum has offered promises of profound personal breakthroughs. Millions of people have paid this organization hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars in hopes of getting a rapid transformation.

Cracks start to show as journalists put pressure on EST and Werner Erhard. The story of his separation from the group in the wake of profound controversy is incredibly telling. It’s a rare look into how a group with a divisive public image was able to rebrand itself in the face of disaster.

The ideas and slogans Landmark draws on are seemingly everywhere. Particularly in the modern parlance of corporate America. Company culture — workplace authenticity, personal responsibility, making employees feel “like owners” — it can feel like a way to pass the buck on. In the final episode of The Beige Room, we look at how the ideas of Landmark have become fully intertwined with modern culture, particularly in the workplace.

30 years ago on October 11th, Professor Anita Hill testified to Congress about sexual harassment she’d suffered when working with then Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas. Thomas denied Hill’s allegations.
