This week, Studio 360 comes to us from the Aspen Ideas Festival, where Kurt and his guests are looking for ways to use the economic crisis to our advantage: think of it as the Great American Reset. Writer Susan Orlean remembers the optimism of her late father, who came of age during the Depression. The band They Might Be Giants has a warning about dangerous fads. And inventor Saul Griffith explains how to get kids excited about the future again.

Kurt's new book, Reset: How This Crisis Can Restore Our Values and Renew America hits bookstores July 28th! Find out why the current economic crisis is actually a moment of great opportunity to get ourselves and our nation back on track.
