About this event

Live Wire Radio is Portland’s own nationally syndicated radio variety show. If you haven’t been to a Live Wire show before, here’s what you’re in for: it’s a bold, sometimes unusual,
sometimes-dangerous-but-always-delightful mix of music, conversation and comedy. With beer.

Join us at the next live show! Some of our guests will include:

Peter Mehlman
Peter Mehlman has the auspicious honor of being the writer of the first episode of Seinfeld, ever. Without Mehlman, we’d never have “yada-yada’d” anything or considered anyone “spongeworthy.” Mehlman’s first novel, It Won’t Always Be This Great is out now on Bancroft Press.

Sara Seager
Ms. Seager is an astrophysicist and a pioneer in the field of exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars that aren’t the sun. Dubbed an “astronomical Indiana Jones,” her current quest is the holy grail of astrophysics, a true Earth twin.

More to be announced!
