Pull up a seat in our intimate studio space and see a live broadcast of WNYC’s Peabody Award-winning radio show. Host Brian Lehrer will take questions from the audience and welcome guests on stage to talk about what matters most now in local and national politics, our own communities and our lives.

Joan Walsh, The Nation‘s national affairs correspondent and a CNN political contributor, talks about the latest national political news.

New York City Council Member Brad Lander talks about his “Reckless Driver Accountability Act,” which will attempt to increase cyclist and pedestrian safety by preventing dangerous drivers from taking to the city streets.

Robert Krulwich, the longtime journalist and (recently-retired) co-host of WNYC’s Radiolab, talks about time and looks back on his career and ahead to new projects as he “retires” from Radiolab.

Micaéla Birmingham, an Emmy Award-winning writer-director and executive producer at the website Scary Mommy, shares a story of her phone-less tween daughter navigating Manhattan by herself — and she and listeners talk about their decisions on when to give their kids access to cell phones.

Please note: The Brian Lehrer Show is a daily news program. All guests are subject to change based on the news of the day and the needs of the show.
