In a program recorded live at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Tony Award-winning performer Sarah Jones transforms herself into a dizzying array of characters — from a Jewish grandmother to a young male rapper. Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner, who developed the theory of multiple intelligences, gives some free analysis to audience members. And country rocker Steve Earle sings about leaving Tennessee, performing tracks from his record Washington Square Serenade.
Studio 360 Live in Aspen 2008 is a co-production of PRI, WNYC, The Aspen Institute, and The Atlantic.
