They’ll talk about his first concert, what being a GenXer at midlife means when it comes to working in the fast-paced world of political journalism, what’s easier/harder/different than he expected about being in this middle phase of life, and what piece of advice he’d give his younger self. There will be plenty of audience participation and as a special treat - live music from the Bay Area songwriter behind the Midlife Mixtape theme music, M. The Heir Apparent ( who recently opened for Matt Nathanson on tour!
