The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.

This week, we've got Sex, Death and Money's Anna Sale, Josh Gondelman of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Blaria LIVE's Phoebe Robinson, The Moth's Micaela Blei, and Anthony DeVito of RISK!
