Hosted by John Lobell, we talk with visionaries – people in the arts, technology, science, culture, and spirituality

What is our culture? For me in the late 1950s it was books - Gide, Freud, culminating in Mailer's Advertisements for Myself. Then in the early 60s it was foreign films - Bergman's Wild Strawberries, Fellini's La Dolce Vita, Antonioni's L'Avventura, and most of all Godard's Breathless. Then in the later 60s, rock music - The Beatles and the Stones, culminating in Dylan. For my students today, they say it is social media - wasup with that? Then we discuss Daniel Markovits's The Meritocracy Trap - more on that to come.
