The AT&T Performing Arts Center and KERA invite you to #thinkspeak – a new summer speaker series with dynamic discussions from leaders in science, art, journalism and criminal justice.

Featuring lecturers whose work has become a cultural phenomenon (if not an obsession) #thinkspeak removes the barrier between audiences and some of the most interesting minds of our time. Summer has never been so cool!


Jad Abumrad

This exciting speaker series will present a diverse lineup featuring MacArthur Fellow and host of the Peabody Award-winning Radiolab, Jad Abumrad; world renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson; the host of This American Life, Ira Glass; and global investigative phenomenon, Serial’s Sarah Koenig.
