Town Hall is a gathering place where ideas are planted and movements grow. It’s where we come together as a community to listen and be heard—to ask and answer the big questions facing our city and our world. Annually, we present hundreds of artists and scholars, and collaborate with more than 150 grassroots groups in our self-produced programs. Rooted in the belief that we all deserve a voice, our programming reflects—and inspires—our region's best impulses: creativity, empathy, and innovation. With our podcast series, we take one more step towards making our programming accessible to all.

PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up on We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe, an entertaining and lucid explanation of particle physics—what little we know of it. Exploring the biggest unknowns in the universe, they ponder why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). They also work to demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With humor and relatability, they invite us to see the universe as a vast expanse of mostly uncharted territory that’s still ours to explore. Watch a video.
