Join PRX and “Reveal’sAl Letson for a dynamic evening of storytelling featuring fascinating, unreleased podcasts. There will be custom cocktails, a killer playlist, a disco ball – the whole shebang.

The six podcasting teams – hailing all the way from San Diego to Murray, Kentucky – have spent the past 20 weeks rigorously developing their podcasts as part of PRX’s innovative podcast accelerator – Project Catapult. And YOU get to be the first to see (and hear) them unveiled!

Go beyond the headlines at the U.S. – Mexico border and learn more about the creativity, beauty and art happening there. Follow the investigation into the disappearance of a young girl from a shelter in Washington, D.C., and find out how it’s changing the way the city treats homelessness. Or maybe you just want to inject some levity into that big, huge, scary problem we call climate change (and learn what we can do about it). Discover all this and more in the perfect atmosphere of OBERON, Harvard Square’s destination for theater and nightlife.

We want this event to be open and accessible to all audiences. Please contact if the general admission ticket price is in any way prohibitive.

Meet the Host

In 2008, Al Letson created, hosted, and executive produced State of the Re:Union (SOTRU). The program aired on more than 300 NPR stations, receiving numerous awards including a Peabody Award (2014) and three consecutive National Edward R. Murrow Awards (2012, 2013, 2014).

In 2015, SOTRU ended production and Letson joined the Center for Investigative Reporting to help launch and host public radio’s first hour-long investigative journalism show, Reveal. Reveal’s pilot, The “VA’s Opiate Overload,” won a Peabody Award (2013). Since then, Reveal has gained a large audience and is heard on over 400 public radio stations and gets over 1 million downloads a month.
