A Reno Family Foundation Symposium –
Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

Television personality, Emmy nominee, and hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness comes to the Museum of Science for one night only! Enjoy a live taping of his popular podcast Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness.

Growing up, Jonathan had a ravenous curiosity for learning new stuff (like his obsession with Finland) that defied the more common pursuits of midwestern boys. In Getting Curious: The Podcast, Jonathan’s curiosity marches on, exploring topics like the Armenian Genocide, Gravitational waves and the Romanovs to lighter fare featuring Margaret Cho or Denise Bidot on what it’s like being a model in fashion today. Each episode focuses on a different topic of interest, welcoming an expert in that particular field to satiate everyone’s curiosity. Jonathan has been turning out episodes since 2015, you will find Getting Curious on Earwolf, Libsyn or the Apple Podcast Store.
