Mixed Taste: At Home

Jul 15, 2020 - Aug 19, 2020


Even mismatched subjects will find common ground in a virtual lecture series that can go pretty much anywhere.

The off-beat series you've loved in person for 15 years can now be enjoyed without having to put pants on. That's right — Mixed Taste is back!

As per usual, two speakers get 20 minutes each to enlighten you on unrelated topics, but can't make any connections to each other. Ideas start to blend afterward when audience members ask questions of both speakers and anything goes.

For the first time ever, we're bringing Mixed Taste to you in a fully-virtual way and for free! You might even recognize some of our favorite lecturers from past seasons imparting knowledge on brand new topics. Don't miss it!
