Live Wire continues its spring season at the newly opened Revolution Hall with a show that promises to bring the “variety” to its “variety show.”
Gregory Gourdet and Doug Adams
This season’s Top Chef: Boston should’ve been titled “Top Chef: Boston, brought to you by Portland, Oregon,” with two of the final three chefs hailing from Portland. Gourdet, first runner-up, is the Executive Chef at Departure and an ultra marathon runner. Adams was second runner-up and works as Chef du Cuisine at Imperial.
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 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.
Live Wire is radio variety for the attention span challenged. It’s music from up-and-coming bands, original comedy, performance and scintillating interviews with writers, filmmakers, comedians and people who think cool thoughts. Hosted by Luke Burbank (Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me, Too Beautiful to Live), the show is taped in front of a live audience and is aired on public radio stations around the country.
