Person Place Thing Podcast Live Taping Event Flier

Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
*By invitation only

On September 17, humorist, former writer of the New York Times Magazine weekly column “The Ethicist,” and four-time Emmy Award-winner Randy Cohen will host a live taping of his podcast Person Place Thing featuring Professor Tensie Whelan, director of the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business. Randy has created a dynamic interview show based on the idea that people are most engaging when they speak not about themselves, but something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place and one thing that are important to them. Past guests have included Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maya Lin, Andy Borowitz, A.O. Scott, Jonathan Safran Foer and Julianne Moore. 

Following the conversation, live music will be performed by blues-inspired musician and Tensie’s brother Sid Whelan.
