A live podcast with Malcolm Gladwell and special musical guest Theda Hammel
Fisher Center, Sosnoff Theater

“It's a lot like hitting the jackpot corner at a really good cocktail party.” – NPR

Writer Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief, New Yorker) and actor Sarah Thyre (Strangers with Candy, Late Night with Conan O’Brien) want to make you cry. For their hilarious and touching podcast Crybabies, they interview comedians, musicians, actors, and writers about the movies, TV, music, plays, and art that make them cry. Best-selling author and social theorist Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point, Blink) joins this special live edition to talk about what tickles his tear ducts.

Just Announced: Up and coming musician, model, and trans activist, Theda Hammel, will provide some sad songs to round out the evening.

Crybabies is distributed by Earwolf
