It's hard to name a groundbreaking TV show from the 1970s that wasn't connected to writer and producer Norman Lear. "All in the Family," "Good Times," "The Jeffersons" and "Sanford and Son" were just a few of Lear's trademark creations, shattering taboos with their edgy racial humor and willingness to dive into topics like rape, abortion and the Vietnam War. Lear joins us to talk about his new memoir, "Even This I Get to Experience."
