Science storytelling show Story Collider is coming to Manhattan on Friday, Jan. 15 for a live show at Kraine Theater—and we’re hosting a special preshow happy hour.

Slate’s very own Mike Pesca, host of daily podcast The Gist, will be one of the storytellers at the event, along with 20-time Moth StorySlam champion and three-time GrandSlam champion storyteller Matthew Dicks. Dicks has coached The Gist's storytelling contest winner, Frank Kennedy, who will be telling a story onstage for the first time that night.


Don’t miss out on an opportunity to meet Mike and chat with the other storytellers (physicist-turned-storyteller Ben Lillie, multiple Moth GrandSlam champion Erin Barker, Rachel Maddow Show’s “in-house astrophysicist” Summer Ash, etc.) about your own stories of science.
