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.

First Time: First Choice - Mason Johnson

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. Engineer by Tony Baker.
