See The Weeds live at SXSW on March 8 and 10

Special guests Julián Castro and Pete Buttigieg join hosts Matt Yglesias, Dara Lind, and Jane Coaston for two episodes of Vox’s politics and policy podcast.

Lauren Katz is a project manager at Vox, focusing on newsroom-wide editorial initiatives as well as podcast engagement strategy.

If you’ll be in Austin, Texas, this week for South By Southwest, you’re in luck: We’re hosting two live tapings of The Weeds, our podcast for politics and policy discussions. That’s right — we said two!

On Friday, March 8, at 2:00 pm CT, Vox’s Senior Correspondent Matt Yglesias, Senior Reporter Dara Lind, and Senior Politics Reporter Jane Coaston will dive into the weeds of housing policy with special guest Julián Castro, former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

On Sunday, March 10, at 12:00 pm CT, Matt, Dara, and Jane will be back, this time to discuss recovery for post-industrial cities (where factories closed and manufacturing jobs were lost) with special guest Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

RSVP by filling out the form on this page. Both tapings will be held at The Belmont, where Vox Media’s The Deep End experience will take place over three days. Starting at 11 am on March 8, 9, and 10, Vox Media will roll out a number of live podcasts, unfiltered conversations, and interactive experiences.
