From the creators of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and Car Talk, Emmy-award winning stand-up comedian and author Paula Poundstone hosts Live From the Poundstone Institute, a weekly podcast from NPR launching in July 8, 2017.
In the show, Poundstone explores theories, studies, and ideas of all types– scientific, quasi-scientific, interpersonal, social, political and artistic. Taped in front of a live audience, Poundstone is paired with researchers, professors, journalists and others who have drawn what they consider “definitive conclusions about something.”
Poundstone is only told the theory’s “headline version” and attempts to unpack what was discovered, poke holes in the theory and determine how – or if – it advances civilization.
Live From The Poundstone Institute tapes its podcast in front of a studio audience at Meltdown Comics in West Hollywood, CA. Through live event activation, sponsors can showcase their brand to a loyal, engaged audience. Event activation opportunities begin June 2017.
