SCARSDALE, N.Y. - A prominent national DJ is taking his radio program to Scarsdale, where he will tape his show at the public library with a local, digital pioneer.
Randy Cohen is bringing his radio program, “ Person Place Thing ” on the road and will tape his show next month with Scarsdale native Maxwell Krohn, the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of TheSpark.com, SparkNotes.com and OKCupid.com.
A 1995 graduate of Scarsdale High School, Krohn has earned degrees from both Harvard and MIT. Most recently, he helped co-found keybase.io, a service that enables people to encrypt, decrypt and send secure messages.
According to Scarsdale library officials, “Person Place Thing” is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging for an audience when they speak on subjects they are passionate about and experts on. Guests are tasked with discussing a person, place and thing that is of importance to them, while Cohen moderates.
A former New York Times writer of The Ethicist column, prominent guests on his show have included Hank Azaria, Roz Chast, Julianne Moore, Ed Koch and Andrew Ross Sorkin.
“We were honored when Randy Cohen approached us about taping an episode of ‘Person Place Thing’ at the Scarsdale Library,” Public Library Director Beth Bermel said. “We’re even more delighted that Max Krohn agreed to be the featured guest. We’re looking forward to having an entertaining morning at the library.”
Cohen will be taping his show with Krohn beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. It is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required by calling the Reference Desk at (914) 722-1302.
