An Hour of Good Listening
I just caught some of this on the radio and want to share it. The new episode of Wisconsin Public Radio’s “To the Best of Our Knowledge” is called Dumbing Down and Smartening Up, and features interviews with Susan Jacoby, author of The Age of American Unreason (mentioned here March 16th); George Saunders, author of the new collection of essays, The Braindead Megaphone; and Andrew Keen, author of The Cult of the Amateur: How Today’s Internet is Killing Our Culture.
The audio of this broadcast hour is available in Real Audio format from the page for the show. Good family listening for a Sunday afternoon like this one….
