As part of Werk It, a 3-day festival celebrating women podcasters, WNYC Studios and KCRW bring you a live taping of BuzzFeed’s award-winning podcast, Another Round. Join Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu as they knock back a few and take on the colorful, crazy world around them. Why are bigots so bad at graphic design? How come nobody knows how cute bats are? Why is therapy so hard? As the bourbon flows, Heben and Tracy will explore race, gender, pop culture, bad jokes, and more with Very Special Guest Amber Rose, plus more surprises to be announced.
