Upcoming Events

Humorist and four-time Emmy Award-winner Randy Cohen joins us again to host his live podcast, an interview show based on the idea that people are most engaging when they speak not about themselves, but 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.

We’re delighted to welcome Person Place Thing back to Van Alen Institute with guest speaker Sreoshy Banerjea, Executive Director of the NYC Public Design Commission.
