  • The Stranger & KUOW Present: Savage Love From A to Z

    To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Savage Love column, Dan Savage takes on edgier-than-ever sex-positive topics with his signature candor in his first illustrated collection of adults-only essays, SAVAGE LOVE FROM A TO Z. Join Dan Savage and KUOW’s Bill Radke for an un-censored live reading, discussion and book signing event! Dan Savage has been talking frankly about sex and relationships since 1991, when his column first appeared in The Stranger. Through his column and podcast, Savage Lovecast, he's since built an international following thanks to his explicit, pragmatic, and humorous advice. Now comes Savage Love from A to Z, an illustrated collection of 26 never-before-published essays that distill Savage's accumulated wisdom down to 26 key concepts: B Is for Boredom, G Is for GGG, M Is for Monogamish, amongst many others. RSVP and find out more. Proof of vaccine required to attend this event.

  • WBUR's On Point Presents: The Prime Effect

    Join On Point host Meghna Chakrabarti and senior editor Dorey Scheimer for a behind-the-scenes look at their series "The Prime Effect." The series explores the ways Amazon is changing the way we live, work and shop; the company's history of innovation; and the reasons why the federal government is looking to scale the company back. Dorey will open her reporter's notebook to give you break down the stories and details she learned while producing the eight-part series. They'll be joined virtually by two special guests: Joshua McNichols, KUOW reporter and co-host of the "Primed" podcast and Tim Bray, former vice president and distinguished engineer at Amazon Web Services, who resigned last summer over the firing of Amazon employee activists.
