This week, Vocal Fry producer Sabrina Brathwaite is sharing her thoughts on the brand new podcast sitcom, Popcorn for Dinner!
In just three episodes, Popcorn for Dinner has earned its place on my regular podcast rotation whenever I’m in the mood for cozy listening with a laugh.
Edited and sound designed by fellow Fry max collins, Popcorn for Dinner is a podcast sitcom following the journey of four early-20s making their way through life. This show is everything you’d come to expect from the sitcom genre, while adapting seamlessly to audio.
This quirky podcast is complete with mundane hijinx and relatable, or at least imaginable, character conflicts (like one character’s aversion to making left turns when the group rents a car for a day, or another faking sick to avoid getting called into work while co-hosting a party in their shared apartment). The podcast pulls me into the world of young adults learning through experience; a go-to when I want to tune into an easy and fun listen while doing chores or winding down after a long day.
The episode narrator really helps to bring the listener into each scene. It’s simple to keep track of which character is doing what, something that can be tough to balance in audio when there’s more than two or three characters in a scene at a time.
Popcorn for Dinner captures that lighthearted, comedic feeling you sign up for when you put on a sitcom. A great option for road trips or a group listening party, Popcorn for Dinner is definitely the audio equivalent of a great show you want to experience and talk about with all of your friends.
