You know how sometimes you go to a comedy show but you find yourself debilitated by all that funniness?

You scream at the organizer “Can’t the comedians be interspersed with writers and storytellers and scientists and artists who are fascinating and cool but not necessarily funny?” “No,” the organizer replies. “Go to hell." You leave, feeling terribly alone. Well, you're not alone any more! Jon Ronson (writer, showgirl) and Maeve Higgins (comedian, legend) are here for you, and each month they assemble the finest brains and smartest mouths NYC has to offer, and serve them up in a basement in Brooklyn.
