Join KPCC In Person for “Live from the Poundstone Institute,” NPR’s newest info-comedy podcast.

Comedian and author Paula Poundstone digs into research studies so odd that they just beg for someone to stand up and say “Wait, what?” From studies on the musical tastes of dogs to the preponderance of “Netflix cheating” among couples to the fluid-dynamics of spilling coffee, Poundstone, along with her head of research (and fellow “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” alum) Adam Felber, leads a laugh-filled and lively inquiry every week and makes the audience part of the show.  

Live from the Poundstone Institute” tapes most Tuesday nights at the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood.

Tickets are $10 for the general public, free for KPCC members.
