Aspen Institute Presents Previous Broadcasts

2013 Overview (Episode #201)

KQED World: Fri, Jun 28, 2013 -- 7:00 AM

The second season of The Aspen Institute Presents premieres with an overview of the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival. Hari Sreenivasan of PBS NewsHour, the host of the first episode, takes us to the best of the 2012 sessions but not before starting off with festival prep and a talk with Walter Isaacson, the President and CEO of The Aspen Institute. Last year's conversations and interviews, which continue to be relevant today, covered issues of corporate values, work-life balance, technology, parenting, the economy's outlook and national service. Featured speakers included Special Master of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Kenneth Feinberg, who is currently overseeing The One Fund; "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom" author Amy Chua; retired Admiral Mike Mullen; Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz; economist Lawrence Summers; CEO Marissa Mayer of Yahoo and retired General Stanley McChrystal. One of the most captivating subjects of the festival was on concussions in football, which began with a screening of American Man. The documentary profiles former NFL running back Kevin Turner and his struggles with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease; the film's conversation continued with a panel discussion.
