Five Things with Kaitlin Prest

Interesting people sharing cool things they love...

Five Things invites some of today’s most talented and successful producers, artists, writers and thinkers to share five things – audio, visuals, books, objects or something else entirely – that have shaped their creative practice over time. Or that inform how they approach their work now. Or, simply enough, that they dig, and want to share with you.

Five Things is an ongoing series at the Podcast Garage hosted by Radiotopia's Julie Shapiro. We're joined this month by Kaitlin Prest, host and co-founder of The Heart - the award-winning podcast about the complicated ways intimacy and humanity intersect.

Tickets are $10 and on sale here. We will have wine, refreshments, and Kaitlin's favorite snacks on hand.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and we'll kick things off at 7:00 p.m.
