Recode Decode Live With Sean Hayes

October 15, 2018 / Los Angeles, CA

Recode Decode Heads to Los Angeles

On Recode Decode, Kara Swisher grills the most important people at the intersection of tech, entertainment and politics. This fall, her podcast is headed to Los Angeles. We’re thrilled to introduce a live podcast recording with Will and Grace star Sean Hayes. And you can join us!

Hayes will speak with Swisher about his production company, Hazy Mills; producing hit shows like Grimm (NBC) and Hollywood Game Night (NBC); writing indie comedies; and what it was like reuniting with iconic co-stars to revive the ’90s hit Will and Grace.

Join us for a live conversation between Swisher and Hayes at Boomtown Brewery in the Los Angeles Arts District on October 15, 2018. There will be craft beers on tap, networking with other Recode fans, and the chance to meet Swisher herself.
