Thalia Hall, Chicago, IL
WBEZ’s Podcast Passport in partnership with BuzzFeed presents the award winning podcast Another Round as the next event in the Podcast Passport series!
Another Round, is co-hosted by Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu and features interviews with guests like Queen Latifah, rapper Remy Ma, Get Out director Jordan Peele, Hillary Clinton, Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as segments on topics ranging from race, gender and pop culture to squirrels, mangoes, and jokes. Another Round has a distinctly youthful and bourbon-based sound (usually Woodford Reserve – the ladies’ drink of choice), which captures and speaks directly to a wide audience.
Join them for a round – or three – as Tracy and Heben make their Chicago debut at Thalia Hall on June 21st. Stay tuned – special guests will be announced soon!
