STG Presents Live Wire! with Luke Burbank at The Neptune on Saturday, December 14, 2019.

Join host Luke Burbank and announcer Elena Passarello for a live recording of this nationally-syndicated radio show!

Featuring an array of guests – from emerging artists to established acts – Live Wire blends the energy of live performance with the intimacy of in-depth interviews for an evening filled with dynamic conversation, live music, and original comedy.

The New York Times bestselling author of, “Vacationland,” John Hodgeman returns to memoir with his trademark whip smart humor to cover topics like the strangeness of his own career and his shifting work identity in his new book, “Medallion Status.” In addition to his writing, Hodgman performs comedy across the country, hosts the popular "Judge John 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 ready for a hilarious and revealing exploration of setbacks, reality checks, and in-real-life status updates.

Jon Mooallem is a pro at walking it out. As the creator of the WALKING podcast - which was named a best podcast of the year by “The A.V. Club” and one of 100 Podcasts Worth Listening To by “New York Magazine” – he takes listeners on hour-long walks with him through the woodlands of the Pacific Northwest. A longtime writer-at-large with “The New York Times Magazine” and a contributor to outlets like “This American Life” and “Wired,” Mooallem’s expertise in conservation, animal life, and the relationship between humans and nature makes him the perfect partner for your own forays. He walks and talks, you listen and do what you do, and we all reflect on the natural bonds that tie us together.
