A special live podcast of Emmy winner Randy Cohen's interview show, featuring the celebrated humorist in conversation with international best-selling writer Colum McCann, a National Book Award winner for Let the Great World Spin and author of the forthcoming Apeirogon

Person Place Thing, based on the idea that people are most engaging when they speak not about themselves but something they care about, invites guests to talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. 

The result? Surprising stories from great talkers. 

“A writer of large and driving vision.”The New York Times on Colum McCann

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