An interactive debate show unlike any other.
Your hosts Meg Pierson, Zak Martellucci, and Dustin Growick lead a rotating cast of special guest experts in a battle royale of serious—and not so serious—topics. Who will come out on top? Dinosaurs or mammals? Biology or physics? Space or oceans? Chock-full of trivia, games, and prizes, the show will conclude with the answer to an age-old question. The winner is up to you, as audience endorsements and YOUR vote will ultimately determine which team is crowned champion of Versus.
THIS MONTH: History vs Anthropology
With guest experts Justin Williams and Leah Golubchick
Tickets: $12 in advance, $15 at the door
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Justin Williams is black and comfortably middle-class. In addition to his day job as a history professor at City College, Justin has parlayed his awkward energy into a unique stand-up act, complete with deadpan delivery and a knack for sarcastically pointing out the absurd. Last year, Justin’s album “Mostly Woke” debuted as a best seller for comedy recordings on Amazon.
Leah Golubchick is a Program Manager and former Anthropology Educator at the American Museum of Natural History. She studied cultural anthropology while at CUNY Brooklyn, Museum Leadership at Bank Street College, and received an informal education by heading professional anthropologists through social situations. In her spare time she enjoys starting fights on the internet, researching elaborate fan theories about television, and giving boozy science talks—including Sexology on Tap and Biology on Tap, coming soon to a bar near you.
