Event Details

Person Place Thing with Randy Cohen, is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result?  Surprising stories from great talkers. Person Place Thing is produced with the JCC in Manhattan and sponsored by WAMC Northeast Public Radio in partnership with Humanities NY.
