A stuck-in-traffic treat for you on the Brian Lehrer Show this Memorial Day: some of our favorite conversations from this year!

This Memorial Day, hear a few of our favorite interviews of 2015, including:

  • PEN president Andrew Solomon on how travel changes both visited and visitor;
  • Acclaimed author Sherman Alexie on his new picture book and whether a U.S. president will ever apologize to Native Americans;
  • An excerpt from Brian’s RadioLoveFest interview with Edward Snowden and Laura Poitras, and a follow-up with legal expert Steve Vladeck on the question of standing trial and whistleblower status;
  • A master class with poet Sharon Olds.

The interviews originally aired earlier this year. Links to the unedited audio are here:
