John Hodgman | 7:30 PM
John Hodgman is carving a comedic path through the dramatic wilds of middle-age. The New York Times bestselling author’s first memoir, Vacationland, uses his trademark whip smart humor to cover topics like the evolutionary purpose of the mustache, why humans should not eat clams, and accepting the fact that someday he will die. Hodgman performs comedy across the country, hosts the popular Judge Hodgman podcast, where he settles serious disputes between real people, and contributes a weekly column under the same name for The New York Times Magazine. With Hodgman as our guide, we’re all aboard for a fascinating and profound trip through the metaphorical forest of mid-life. more >>>

Already an award-winning journalist, Young uses his own “unexpected obsession” with getting good at shooting to expose deeper issues like the cycle of white fear, white violence, and black fear, as well as the rise in gun ownership among black Americans – especially women. Young is shooting at some of the hardest-to-hit cultural targets in our country, and his aim is true. more >>>
