Ciarán Madden, Consul General of Ireland in New York
Geraldine Byrne Nason, Ireland's Permanent Representative to the United Nations

With musical guest Jenna Nicholls

Humorist and four-time Emmy Award-winner Randy Cohen joins us to host his live podcast, 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.

Guests are drawn from a range of New York life including politicians, artists, thinkers, and academics. Past guests have included Paul Shaffer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maya Lin, Laurie Anderson, Andy Borowitz, A.O. Scott, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Julianne Moore.

“Richly entertaining…a talented satirist”Publishers Weekly on Randy Cohen
