4 segments
  • Kandinsky  17 min
  • Connected  23 min
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Taylor Branch discusses The Clinton Tapes, the book that describes a late-night drunken pizza run by Boris Yeltsin. Then, we speak with two curators from the Guggenheim Museum about a new retrospective of abstract art pioneer Vasily Kandinsky. Also, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright talks about her career and how she used decorative pins to make diplomatic statements. Plus, we look at how our networks of friends can influence almost everything about our personality — from our politics to our health to our emotions.
