This week, Kurt Andersen talks with Jessica Lange, who currently stars in the FX miniseries American Horror Story: Coven. We consider the blunders that lead Darwin and Einstein to their most brilliant scientific discoveries. And in American Icons, we revisit Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Puritan romance novel The Scarlet Letter — in the age of the internet sex scandal, we find Hester Prynnes living within our midst.
