You know when your train is f*cked – this is the show that tells you WHY.
This month's show: YOU – The MTA truly fucks up the subway in innumerable ways. This time, we're dedicating an entire show to you, the riders, and how was fuck things up, too! We're talking turnstile jumpers (although they're DEFinitely not as bad as the MTA claims...), holding open the doors, selling swipes, and not supporting our above ground brethren, like express buses and congestion pricing. Be a good commuter and join us for this month's show!

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Get on board for a deep dive into the history of the MTA. Whether you love it, hate it, or want to compose more informed rage-tweets about it during your next 20 minute delay – we’ve got you covered. Your hosts Meg Pierson (TEDx, Alchemy Comedy) and Justin Williams (City College, SirusXM), along with a mysterious anonymous ghostwriter, will conduct our show through the twists and turns of history; revealing unbelievable stories, subway life-hacks, and truly upsetting details about our subway system.
Meg Pierson: A Brooklyn resident, Meg co-founded Alchemy Comedy Theater in South Carolina. In addition to helping to write and produce the pet health video series Cone of Shame, Meg travels internationally teaching improv workshops at veterinary conferences – she isn’t a vet but if your cat’s peeing outside of the litterbox it’s probably a UTI. She’s a two-time emcee of TEDx Greenville and currently hosts Versus at Caveat every second Saturday. In her free time, she offers people jobs at Axiom Law.
Justin Williams is an Assistant Professor of History at the City College of New York. Justin is also a comedian that has been featured on Comedy Central’s Jokes.com, Mashable, SiriusXM Radio, The Elite Daily, Men’s Health Magazine, The Kansas City Star, ‘Morning Buzz Live‘ on VH1, ‘Trial by Laughter’ on Comcast, ‘Laughs’ on Fox and ‘The Comedy Show Show’ on Seeso.
