PAZ

Il miglior modo per conoscere un podcast è il passaparola. Solitamente questo viaggia attraverso i social media. P.A.Z., acrononimo che sta per Podcast Ascolti Zurigo, nasce per scoprire cose nuove da ascoltare e avere la possibilità di parlarne con altri, in persona. Come in un bookclub, ma dedicato ai podcast.
Questo mese a PAZ si ascolta “Quegli stupefacenti anni zero” un podcast originale di Olmo Cerri. Se ne discute il 25 giugno 2024 alle ore 18:30 nel Bar Lounge del Cinema Frame, in Lagerstrasse 104, Zurigo.

QSAZ

In questo podcast, che esce esattamente a vent’anni dall’Operazione Indoor, voglio raccontare gli anni a cavallo del cambio di secolo, quegli stupefacenti anni zero: in un Ticino in cui si poteva vendere e comperare canapa in maniera apparentemente legale. Un limbo sospeso tra una vecchia legge non più adatta ai tempi e una nuova visione del futuro ancora tutta da scrivere. E in mezzo a quel caos c’eravamo noi che stavano cercando di diventare grandi.

Quegli stupefacenti anni zero” è un podcast originale di Olmo Cerri prodotto dalla Radiotelevisione Svizzera, con il sostegno della Fondazione svizzera per la radio e la cultura FSRC/SRKS e dell’Associazione REC.

Produzione di Francesca Giorzi, postproduzione di Thomas Chiesa e musiche originali di Victor Hugo Fumagalli.

Each month, we gather to discuss a podcast we’ve listened to, sharing thoughts, opinions, and recommendations for future listens. This month, we’re diving into “Quegli stupefacenti anni zero” (Those Amazing 2000s), an original podcast by Olmo Cerri, produced by Swiss Radio and Television, with the support of the Swiss Foundation for Radio and Culture FSRC/SRKS and the REC Association.

Quegli stupefacenti anni zero (Those Amazing 2000s)

You can find “Quegli stupefacenti anni zero” on rsi.ch/play and all major podcast platforms.

Description from Olmo Cerri’s official site:

At the end of the last millennium, I was still a minor and unaware that a true revolution was about to unfold in Switzerland. In just a few years, the Canton became a mini Amsterdam, a hallucinogenic island in the heart of Europe attracting the world’s best hemp growers and hordes of consumers. The “scented bags” meant to freshen up wardrobes were mostly being smoked. This expanding market also sparked significant concerns: abuse, black markets, and illegal exports.

In this podcast, released exactly twenty years after Operation Indoor, I aim to recount the years straddling the turn of the century, those amazing 2000s: a time in Ticino when buying and selling hemp seemed almost legal. A limbo between an outdated law and a new, yet-to-be-written vision of the future. And in the midst of that chaos, there we were, trying to grow up.

“Quegli stupefacenti anni zero” is an original podcast by Olmo Cerri, produced by Swiss Radio and Television, with the support of the Swiss Foundation for Radio and Culture FSRC/SRKS and the REC Association. Produced by Francesca Giorzi, post-produced by Thomas Chiesa, with original music by Victor Hugo Fumagalli.

What’s P.A.Z.?

The best way to discover a podcast is through word of mouth, usually traveling through social media. P.A.Z., an acronym for Podcast Ascolti Zurigo, was born to uncover new things to listen to and the chance to discuss them with others in person. Like a book club, but for podcasts.

Is there an entry fee?

The event is free (it would be nice to know how many of us are coming, so if you can, RSVP for free here). Everyone is free to order something at the bar at their own expense.

Do I need to have listened to the entire podcast?

No, you can come even if you haven’t heard the entire podcast (but it’s better if you have).

Is the podcast to listen to always in Italian?

Yes, currently, P.A.Z. aims to focus on Italian-language podcasts, and anyone who speaks Italian is welcome.

I like it but I can’t be there, what can I do?

Feel free to contact me via the email you find on Eventbrite, and I will be able to keep you updated on upcoming events.
