You know how every day someone asks “how are you?” And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say “fine,” so everyone can go about their day? Terrible, Thanks for Asking is a podcast that is the opposite of that. They ask real people to share their complicated and honest feelings – sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and sometimes both at once.
Join us for a live performance of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking, featuring stories and conversations about real lived experiences. Host Nora McInerny will provide her signature sad, funny, uncomfortable and honest take on love, grief, life and everything that comes with it.
Presented in partnership with WBEZ’s Podcast Passport and The Fest Curated by Third Coast International Audio Festival.
