When Things Went Crazy

New York Times media reporter Bill Carter gives a behind-the-scenes account of the 2009/2010 late-night season, when NBC decided to move Jay Leno into prime time to make room for Conan O'Brien to host the Tonight show. Then, we’ll find out about folklorist and archivist Alan Lomax, who played a pioneering role in introducing folk music to the American public. Also, we’ll hear from a New Yorker who’s attempting to live in 52 neighborhoods in 52 weeks. Plus, Roseanne Barr offers her observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and modern life, and her new memoir Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm.
