Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi Present at the National Academy of Design for Person Place Thing Podcast

On Monday, December 4th, Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi spoke at the National Academy Design for a fully booked live recording of Person Place Thing, a podcast hosted by Emmy Award-winning journalist Randy Cohen. Person Place Thing posits the idea that people are much more engaging when not talking about themselves, but discussing the things, places, and people that inspire them. The result is insightful and often surprising stories from great speakers. Previous guests of the podcast include Tod Williams NA and Billie Tsien NA; Mierle Laderman Ukeles; Anna Deveare Smith; Alice Aycock NA; David Gonzalez; and Yeohlee Teng.
