Inside the Meltdown

New York Times reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin takes us behind the scenes of the financial crisis as it unfolded last year—from what happened inside the offices of Lehman Brothers to the corridors of power in Washington. Then, we talk about the centennial of the Thanhouser Company, an independent film studio in New Rochelle, New York, that produced movies in our area before the industry relocated to California. And Margaret Atwood on her new post-apocalyptic novel The Year of the Flood. Also, we speak with William D. Cohan about the trial of former Bear Stearns hedge fund managers. Plus, a look at why the U.S. government is tripling its aid package to Pakistan.
