PERSON PLACE THING:
CARL KREBS IN CONVERSATION WITH RANDY COHEN

HOSTED BY THE IRISH ARTS CENTER • JULY 2019

Davis Brody Bond partner Carl F. Krebs recently sat with humorist and four-time Emmy Award-winner Randy Cohen for his live podcast Person Place Thing, an interview show “based on the idea that people are most engaging when they speak not about themselves, but something they care about.” Guests on the show are asked to talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are meaningful to them. The result is engaging, free-flowing stories from great talkers. Past guests have included Paul Shaffer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maya Lin, Laurie Anderson, Andy Borowitz, A.O. Scott, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Julianne Moore.

Mr. Krebs, perhaps best known for the National September 11 Museum, spoke about his architectural career (including his work the 9-11 Museum as well as the new Irish Arts Center, currently under construction on the west side of Manhattan); Ground Zero and the events of 9-11; his relationship with the renowned architect, educator, and Davis Brody Bond founder J. Max Bond; and his grandfather’s medal from the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm. Music: Caitlin Warbelow. Photo: Harry Wilks. LISTEN HERE
