First Time: First Choice - Cate Brecht

Cate Brecht is a transport from Florida. She is an adult that doesn’t know what anything means or what to do with herself.  She has channeled this energy most recently into talking about her mental health even though she was always told to not discuss that. She has been doing shows around the city talking about her mental breaks. She loves theatre and is a member on the board of the Chicago Volunteer organization The Saints, an organization that provides ushers to almost all Chicago theatres. The ushers are able to enjoy theatre all over the city by providing a simple service. If you’re interested in knowing more, please let her know.  She would like to think of herself as a writer and teller of stories. She is one of the Babes from the podcast Babes Watch Buffy, an intersectional feminist watch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s been on hiatus, but it’ll be back.  If you talk to her she’ll probably want to know what movie you saw recently and to show you a picture of her cat.

The First Time is CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series. It pairs a reader’s personal story about a specific "first time" -- a different "first" for each show -- with a song performance. This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by The First Time Four. The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell which the audience enjoys more: the story or the song.

The First Time is produced and directed by Julie Mueller with Assistant Producer Bobby Evers and Host Jenn Sodini. Podcast produced and recorded by Jenn Rourke. Engineering by Tony Baker.

First Time: First Choice - Nicole Vasquez

Nicole Vasquez, MBA, believes that a certain kind of magic occurs when people of all different backgrounds come together to share information and ideas: they experience the power of perspective, understand new ways of thinking, and create new opportunities.

Nicole’s current roles are Co-Founder and Chief Community Officer of Deskpass (named one of Chicago’s “50 on Fire” companies), and Co-Founder of Second Shift (named ‘Chicago’s Best Coworking Space’ by Chicago Reader). Nicole has also won several awards, including traveling to Europe as a Professional Fellow through the U.S. Department of State.

When she’s not geeking out about coworking and community building, she travels, writes, and learns about the world through observations and conversations with people.
