Life and the Afterlife

4 segments

Our series on HIV/AIDS continues with a look at how the virus has changed life here in New York City. Then, we’ll explore the concept of heaven and why it has survived for millennia. And Jo Sullivan Loesser discusses the work of her late husband, the legendary composer Frank Loesser, who wrote over 700 songs, including the lyrics and music for “Guys and Dolls” and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Plus, this week’s Please Explain is all about algorithms – those equations behind everything from Google to the trades made on Wall Street.
