Did you hate your high school formal or just want to relive your teenage glory? Well, you’re in luck! Bust out your corsages and boutonnieres because we're throwing a high school dance party in honor of our brand new podcast, The Cooler, which launches September 16th!

My cohosts (Jamedra Brown Fleischman and Carly Severn) and I will be taking the stage on September 22nd at The Chapel for a live podcast taping with:

Comedy from W. Kamau Bell!

Vogueing by Jocquese Whitfield!


And music by Brontez Purnell  and the Younger Lovers!

There will also be live portrait drawing by Thien Pham, an awkward photo booth for you and your date,  and a night of dancing to the best high school dance music from 1990-2005!

Buy your tickets now!

And if you have any good stories about high school dances, send 'em to pop@kqed.org. We might feature them at the event and on our podcast!

See y'all on September 22nd!
