Closing General Session featuring Peter Sagal

2018 Employment Law & Legislative Conference

Satire & Stories: Responding to Today’s Political Climate

In this session, that’s as entertaining as it is informative, Sagal will describe this unprecedented time in both politics and media. He will also share his belief that sometimes laughter is not only the best medicine, but the most reasonable thing to do in response. More specifically, he will cover:

  • The psychology behind why his show, NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, and those like it have become so popular in today’s culture.
  • The powerful stories he’s encountered of how the U.S. Constitution and politics are impacting peoples’ lives in profound ways.
  • Why this matters to you and the organizations you serve.
