Terrible, Thanks for Asking
Presented by WBEZ's Podcast Passport and The Fest, curated by Third Coast International Audio Festival
Friday, October 5, 2018 at 8:00PM

Athenaeum Main Stage
2936 N. Southport Ave.
Lobby level

Lincoln, Wellington and Southport
CTA Bus #9; Brown Line Wellington Stop

All ages. Doors at 7 pm. Performance lasts 90 minutes without intermission, followed by an informal Q&A that concludes at 11 pm.

You know how every day someone asks “how are you?” And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say “fine,” so everyone can go about their day? Terrible, Thanks for Asking is a podcast that is the opposite of that. They ask real people to share their complicated and honest feelings – sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and sometimes both at once.

Join us for a live performance of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking, featuring stories and conversations about real lived experiences. Host Nora McInerny will provide her signature sad, funny, uncomfortable and honest take on love, grief, life and everything that comes with it.

Presented in partnership with WBEZ’s Podcast Passport and The Fest Curated by Third Coast International Audio Festival.
