On today’s show, financial journalist Roger Lowenstein gives us a blow-by-blow account of the biggest financial crash since the Great Depression. Then, a look at “method acting” and Lee Strasberg… we’ll talk about his legacy with his widow and with acting teacher Lola Cohen. Also, Robocop director Paul Verhoeven (who as it turns out is also a Jesus scholar) discusses how Jesus can be seen as a radical prophet. And, our latest Please Explain is all about skin care!
