Speakeasy invites some of Pittsburgh’s funniest storytellers to tell a true story while musician FeralCat and DJ Fadewell provide a real time soundtrack. But when the story ends, we’re just getting started. Host Alan Olifson (Moth, WordPlay) takes you behind the story, interviewing each storyteller to ask the burning questions you’d ask if you were sitting next to them at the bar. It’s Late Night for the NPR set.
