Person Place Thing with Nicholas Lowry

Friday, Apr 28, 2023

Poster House is thrilled to partner with Randy Cohen of Person Place Thing for a live recording of this popular public radio series. He will be joined by Poster House Advisory Board member and tartan legend, Nicholas “Nicho”  Lowry. Nicholas wears many poster-related hats: auctioneer, specialist,  lecturer, curator, historian, enthusiast, and collector. He is perhaps best known, though, as the President and Principal Auctioneer of Swann Auction Galleries, where he is also the Director of its vintage posters department. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on vintage posters, he has spent nearly 25 years serving regularly as a poster appraiser on the PBS television series Antiques Roadshow.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing with particular meaning to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers and thinkers. 

Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays, and stories for newspapers and magazines. His first television work was writing for Late Night With David Letterman, for which he won three Emmy awards. His fourth Emmy was for his work on Michael Moore’s TV Nation. He was the ethics columnist at the New York Times for twelve years. He is currently the creator and host of Person Place Thing, a public radio program.
