LOVE

Love love love this! I’m a long-time Sixth & I fan and am always so bummed when I can’t make it to an event or it’s sold out before I get tickets. Now I can still hear the speaker and do laundry at the same time! Though nothing beats being in that gorgeous Sanctuary :)

Stellar Scheduling

Literary giants in our midst. Chernow, DeLillo, Coates, Dr. Mukherjee... I missed a show because I was sick. I’m so thankful they finally have a podcast!

So happy that Sixth & I is now able to share these amazing events in this format! Can’t wait to hear what comes next!
