Join Emmy award-winning host Luke Burbank for the taping of LiveWire, the fastest growing entertainment show on public radio. Get turned on to new music, comedy and conversations with a diverse range of original voices — and an anything-can-happen-vibe.

Maria Semple is a titan. This is to say that she’s an all-too rare author of literary fiction that is funny. Her most recent novel, Where'd You Go, Bernadette, tracks everything from the corporate culture of Microsoft to the preferred drinks of Antarctic researchers. She’s also the author of “compassionate and wickedly funny satire," This One is Mine. Not impressed with those chops? She’s also busted her chops as an Emmy nominated TV writer for shows such as Ellen, Mad About You and was a consulting producer on Arrested Development. He latest book is titled Today Will Be Different, and will debut in October. She doesn’t waste her time-- she goes for the gut; source of feelings, source of belly-laughs.

Misha Collins isn’t an angel, but he plays one on TV. With a starring role on the CW’s Supernatural as the angel Castiel, you may wonder if all that goodness and divinity leave their mark on him personally-- after all, word has it that his character’s season 12 plot arc is largely focused around literally hunting down Lucifer. One response to that query is that Collins is the co-founder and board president of the “Random Acts of Kindness,” an organization “dedicated to funding and inspiring acts of kindness around the world.” He’s also responsible for g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s, which stands for the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen-- a 7-time Guinness World Record breaking, insane scavenger hunt hosted by Collins that tens of thousand of people compete in every year from around the world. So, the short answer is maybe. For the long answer, you’ll have to come see the show!

Luke Burbank grew up one of seven kids, learning early on how to vie for attention. Those profound childhood issues have propelled him to various media projects including This American Life, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, CBS Sunday Morning, and the daily podcast Too Beautiful To Live. He lives in Seattle with his wife and daughter. Luke is thrilled to be hosting Live Wire and keeps telling himself you're chanting Luuuuuuuuuke and not saying Booooooooo because you're not doing that right? Wait, seriously, you were booing? At a public radio show? This would never happen to Ira Glass.
