STG Presents Live Wire with Luke Burbank at The Neptune on Saturday, December 9, 2017.

*Preferred Seating = first 5 rows at The Neptune.

Join Emmy award-winning host Luke Burbank for this special Seattle edition of Live Wire, the fastest growing entertainment show on public radio (airs Saturday evenings at 5pm on KUOW). We’ve got a Late Night stride, an Oscar Wilde wit, and the charisma of Ferris Bueller grand marshaling a parade. Music, comedy, and conversation, live and packed with surprises.

Ken Jennings & John Roderick are making a time capsule - except instead of burying it in the backyard, they’re burying it in our ears via their podcast Omnibus. In their own words Omnibus is “a monumental reference of strange and obscure human knowledge” and “a podcast for the end of the world.” Well, if the end is nigh, there’s no one better to recap our greatest hits and misses than these two. Make us look good to future generations, huh, guys?

Emmy Favilla, the Copy Chief at Buzzfeed has some thoughts about grammar and articulation. Author of Buzzfeed’s style guide-- now adopted by most of the web-- Favilla is the grand dame of our evolving internet language. With her new book, A World Without “Whom,” an examination of how to communicate clearly in the internet age, certain copywriters have even more reason to take care when writing her bio for public radio appearances.

Sophie Egan wants you to take a deeper look at the food you’re eating. In her new book Devoured she pulls from psychology, food science, and daily life to examine the connections between American values and our eating habits - for better or for worse. She’s a regular contributor to The New York Times Health section and a Program Director at the Culinary Institute of America when she’s not busy unraveling our food psyches.

Anastacia-Renee, the current Civic Poet of Seattle, is a potent hybrid of awesomeness, working as a workshop facilitator, a performance artist, and an activist. She’s also a writing and publishing machine with three books out this year: (v.), Answer(Me), and Forget It. A queer writer of color, she just finished a prestigious gig as Poet-in-Residence at the Hugo House. She’s a force to be reckoned with, and we welcome the reckoning.

Laura Gibson is leveling up. And not just because her 2016 album, Empire Builder, was called “her best record to date” by Pitchfork. She’s a folk/indie singer and songwriter who plays numerous instruments, has an MFA in fiction writing, and as a storyteller and performer is constantly upping her game. If she’s building an empire, then we want her to be our queen.
