Host of Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen on 60s culture


    Hour 2

    [REBROADCAST] A prominent law professor in her 60s looks back on her youth as she’s writing a tell-all memoir about her romping, spy novel-obsessed 1960s youth and left-wing college activism. As she’s about to reveal the 40-year secret about why she removed herself from being considered an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court she has to come to terms with long, unanswered questions. This first-person novel is written by our guest, KURT ANDERSEN, host of public radio’s “Studio 360,” and co-founder of Spy magazine. He’s also received attention from a recent New York Times op ed, “The Downside of Liberty,” about how he sees a connection between the selfishness of the late 60s hippie generation and the extreme individualism of today’s investor, “forever-young and moneyed” culture. Anderson’s new book is “True Believers.”
