Event Details

Connect with WGBH, local leaders, stories, trends and each other at BostonTalks. This September, it’s all about coming together. Hear from three speakers who are doing just that with their careers.

Go behind the blue paint with Lyle Blaker of Blue Man Group, and hear how he connects with his audience without saying a word.

Matt Peterson of MIT studies how our brains make connections that allow us to know and understand others instantly through facial recognition.

Additional speakers to come.

Join Lyle, Matt and others for a smarter happy hour hosted by Edgar B. Herwick III from WGBH’s Curiosity Desk.


A Smarter Happy Hour

Connect with local experts in a variety of fields while enjoying the great company of your neighbors from Boston and beyond in this smarter happy hour. Each event combines short speaking programs, drinks and an opportunity for you to join the conversation.
