Since our 2017 season, hosts Jini Palmer, Steve Scher, and local correspondents have interviewed hundreds of luminaries, local officials, and national and international thought leaders as part of our In The Moment podcast. This month, we celebrate the series’ 100th edition with a special introspective episode that reflects on how Town Hall faced the challenges (and celebrated the successes) of the past year. Hear from Town Hall staff and insiders about work-from-home life, learning how to produce virtual events on the fly, and the challenge of staying healthy and connected during a year of physical isolation.
