Accents and Altitude. Kurt Andersen went to far-flung summer festivals, and all he got us was this lousy T-shirt. In an audio postcard from Edinburgh’s Fringe Fest, special correspondent Fiona Chutney guides Kurt through the festival’s tidal wave of theater options. And later, in the Rocky Mountains, actress/playwright Anna Deavere Smith, novelist Edward P. Jones, and the band Elizabeth and the Catapult join Kurt on stage at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
