Talk To Me: Designer Royalty Discusses Motherhood

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Carl Jung's Red Book inspired Gloria Vanderbilt to discuss her experiences of motherhood: from her hallucinations during childbirth, to the pet snake of her son, journalist and personality Anderson Cooper. Cooper loved the snake so much that he had it taxidermied after its death. She spoke with the Brazilian-born, New York-based psycholanalyst Andrea Fiuza Hunt for our "Red Book Dialogue" series.

WNYC's Talk to Me series is featuring notable dialogues from the Red Book Dialogues.

The description of this clip is not accurate. I listened to all 24 minutes and GV did NOT discuss childbirth or her son's pet snake in this clip.

I'm loving listening to these recordings. Any chance there will be a post of Andre Gregory's talk?
