Neil deGrasse Tyson, Serial's Sarah Koenig Headline New Speaker Series: #thinkspeak

AT&T Performing Arts Center

There’s another reason to look forward to summer besides the warmer temperatures. KERA and the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas are teaming up to produce a new summer speaker series called #thinkspeak.

Each month, there will be a live event with public radio stars you’re probably familiar with: Serial host Sarah Koenig, Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad, This American Life host Ira Glass and astrophysicist and StarTalk Radio host Neil deGrasse Tyson. 

We'll kick things off with Radiolab's Jad Abumrad on May 15. Find the full schedule here

Tickets for the live events will sell fast. Call 214-880-0202 for tickets. 

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
