Description

Y'all - this is a good one. Trust us. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you reflect, it'll inspire...it might even give you that special WITHpod brand of existential crisis. Our second stop of the fall tour brought Chris Hayes to the stunning Theatre at the Ace Hotel with screenwriter and director Adam Mckay along with debut novelist Omar El Akkad. The question at hand - how can we use art and pop culture to properly convey the urgency of the climate crisis? How can storytelling break through the noise and get to the beating heart of the collective struggle our planet is in? And how will future generations think about the way we are meeting this moment? Like we said, maybe a teensy existential crisis. But we promise, you'll laugh a lot too.

>> CHICAGO! We're releasing general admission standing only tickets for our Live WITHpod November 12th with Nikole Hannah-Jones and Ibram X. Kendi. Buy tickets here!

Unexpectedly for a climate change exchange, thoughts as to how we got here and how to interpret things can be both eye opening and "well yeah!" at the same time. That's how this remarkable conversation made me feel in its entirety - with the exception to the shell taco ring ;) - the most reasonable statements brought tears to my eyes. With a sparkle of odd hope in my heart, i purchased American War, and words aren't really enough to thank WITH team and the guests. I'm grateful.
