1. Today we launched 92Y On Demand, our new video & audio channel with over 1,000 archival recordings of the biggest names in the arts, literature, entertainment, politics and more from our stage and studio.

    To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of 92Y’s Poetry Center, we are releasing for the first time this hour-long audio clip of E.E. Cummings reading selected poems. It is our earliest recording, dating back to October 20, 1949. A.L. Kennedy wrote an essay about it for a special project of the anniversary season, 75 at 75: Writers on Recordings.

    Other highlights from 92Y On Demand include:

    Amy Poehler answering questions from the Tumblr community.

    In-depth interview with Nas.

    Debate on God between Christopher Hitchens and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson in 2007 and 2009 as he was becoming a science superstar.
