Ideas In Action with Jim Glassman
A weekly series on ideas and their consequences. Each episode limits itself to one topic, and presents a discussion of trends, conditions, and ideas behind the week's headlines, in order to go deeper into a subject than the average TV show. Viewers engage with a diverse group of economists, historians, anthropologists, political scientists, demographers, and social philosophers, as well as authorities from many other disciplines.
