Event Details

This new series continues with Brooklyn residents Laura Walker, President and CEO of New York Public Radio, and Ophira Eisenberg, comedian, writer and host of new weekly trivia comedy show, Ask Me Another, which is coproduced by NPR and WNYC.  While their conversation will be completely spontaneous -- no moderator, no script, no notes, no cues – topics will likely include the role of public media in the digital age, the joys and challenges of being funny on cue, and the all-pervasive creative spirit of their home borough.   

As President and CEO of New York Public Radio, Ms. Walker leads one of the most successful public media organizations.  New York Public Radio programs and operates WNYC-FM, WNYC-AM, WQXR, WQXW, New Jersey Public Radio, The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space and a variety of digital properties.  During her tenure, New York Public Radio has been honored with George Foster Peabody Awards, Alfred I. DuPont Columbia University Awards and developed groundbreaking programs like Radiolab, The Takeaway and Freakonomics Radio.  Ms. Eisenberg  has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Today Show, Comedy Central and VH-1.  Her debut memoir, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy, was recently optioned by Zucker Productions for a feature film. In addition to hosting Ask Me Another, she is a regular host and storyteller with The Moth.

Organizer

Brooklyn Historical Society

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.

Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
