On this Memorial Day, we’re revisiting some of our favorite Takeaway interviews from the last year, like our conversation back in April with Lena Dunham, creator and star of the hit series Girls; revisiting the science of creativity with Jonah Lehrer; and discussing suicide among gay teenagers with Tyler Clementi's older brother James. Also on The Takeaway, we preview the new Brian Lehrer Show series "End of War", discuss the record numbers of veterans applying for disability, and talk about the history of Memorial Day with Kenneth C. Davis.
