Sarah Wilke

After more than a decade at contemporary theater On the Boards, Wilke is taking on executive director duties at SIFF. Which you could quite literally call a stage-to-screen adaptation.

Barack Obama

On his way out of the White House, POTUS predicted that the Seahawks would reach the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons. Thanks, Obama. No, really. Thanks for everything.

Mónica Guzmán

With Anika Anand, she launched “The Evergrey,” an enewsletter that’s meant to reconnect us to our ever-evolving city. It’s like a welcome mat for locals who never left.

Naveen Jain

The tech vet is sponsoring a $1 million XPrize contest to develop a tool for women to alert authorities when threatened. Must like money and hate sexual violence. So basically everyone.

Kathy Griffin

After publishing Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins last fall, she’ll bump into Seattle this month—and find a way to make us laugh and feel insecure at the same time. (The Moore Theatre, Jan 14)

Dr. Dimitri Christakis

To parents who pacify kids with iPads: The Seattle Children’s doc says no more than one hour of screen time per day for little ones. Actually…that’s good advice for all of us.
