The Wall Street Journal began 125 years ago as a 4-page afternoon paper, and since then, it’s grown to cover every major financial center around the world and is published in 12 languages. We’ll speak with some of the Journal’s editors about the legacy and future of the paper. Playwright Sarah Treem talks about her play “When We Were Young and Unafraid;” she’s joined by Cherry Jones and Zoe Kazan, who star in it. We’ll explore the mysteries of “star presence” in cinema. And we’ll discuss the psychology and politics of child sexual abuse cases.
