Person Place Thing (Martin Hayes and Howard Wolfson)

Hosted by the New York Times Magazine's celebrated Ethicist columnist Randy Cohen



Thu, Apr 26



Box Office


Irish Arts Center
553 West 51st Street
New York, NY 10019


Join us for a spirited conversation featuring Martin Hayes and former Deputy Mayor under Bloomberg and nationally-renowned political strategist Howard Wolfson. The two met when Hayes was interviewed by Wolfson for his former music and politics blog, GothamAcme, in which they explored their mutual passion for Irish music. The conversation may well take them into politics—another shared interest. Martin will have his fiddle along and perform a few tunes as well. The evening will end witn an audience Q&A.

This will be a special live podcast of "Person Place Thing" hosted by Emmy award-winner Randy Cohen (David Letterman Show, New York Times, New Yorker, Slate). The show from NPR station WAMC features guests who talk about a person, a place and a thing they find meaningful. The results: surprising stories from great talkers. Previous guests include Rickie Lee Jones, Dick Cavett, Samantha Bee, and Ed Koch.
