Studio 360 creates life. Will Wright, game designer and creator of the Sims, shows Kurt how his new game Spore lets players control the evolution of their very own species. Correspondent “Fiona Chutney” (a character played by performer Iris Bahr) tries to get loose at this year’s Burning Man festival. And John Malkovich stops by to talk about his role in the new Coen Brothers film “Burn After Reading.”

Studio 360 goes Hollywood. In June 2007, in front of a live audience at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, Kurt talked to the city’s creative movers and shakers. East L.A. fusion rockers Quetzal show how they’re pushing the boundaries of Chicano music to a new level of cool. Jon Robin Baitz (creator of ABC’s "Brothers and Sisters") explains why it’s good to be a playwright writing for TV. Plus, insightful commentary from Svetlana, LA's most highly cultured escort (as performed by actress and playwright Iris Bahr).

Studio 360 takes to the streets. We get swept up in strike fervor at a WGA rally. Novelist Will Self exits LaGuardia Airport and tries to walk to Manhattan. Kurt Andersen and filmmaker Gary Hustwit go hunting for a 50-year-old typeface. And Julian Schnabel on his new movie, the Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It’s based on the memoir of a man who survived a stroke, but suffered in a condition called “locked-in syndrome”, only able to communicate by blinking his left eye.

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.

This season, a host of new books and movies tell us that the end of the world (or at least modern civilization) is on its way. Journalist Daniel Pinchbeck explains how an ancient Mayan prophecy convinced him. And Cormac McCarthy’s bleak novel The Road takes the apocalypse out of the hands of science-fiction writers. We’ll also hear a performance by New York theater sensation Iris Bahr and from the man millions of French people know as the voice of Samuel Jackson.
