Quinn Christopherson joins host Stephen Kallao

Quinn Christopherson is the winner of this year’s Tiny Desk Contest, which saw over six thousand applicants all vying for the chance to perform their own Tiny Desk Concert – A video series launched in 2008 by NPR Music’s Bob Boilen. We’ll hear what happened when Quinn got the call that he had won, and what’s happened since. Plus, Quinn performs live, but chose not to play his winning song, “Erase Me,” about his experience as a transgender man. We’ll learn why in today’s conversation with host Stephen Kallao.
