6-Year Anniversary Show with Special Guests!
Hosted by Blaise Allysen Kearsley

How I Learned celebrates six years of awkward funtimes this January with a dynamite lineup of talented foxes telling true, personal stories. The theme? Anything related to birthdays and anniversaries... in any way. Like, even if it's just a minor detail and doesn't actually have that much to do with the story. Fuck the rules. We're six now and we're out of control. Let's have a good year, you guys!
