Join us for an entertaining and informative evening at Town Hall to hear iSchool professor Joe Janes talk about his popular podcast series, Documents that Changed the World. 

Even something as seemingly dull as a document can have a secret, fascinating story and it’s Joe Janes’ mission to illuminate them and reveal their profound influence. From President Obama’s birth certificate, to Mao’s Little Red Book, Janes tells the stories of these important information objects, revealing another remarkable facet of our history. His DTCW podcast series has hit 20k downloads with many more to come.

Tickets are $5; free for UW students with ID.
