On Moyers and Company
I’m the guest on Bill Moyers’ new show, Moyers and Company, airing on PBS stations Feb 5-7. Check your local PBS stations. Or, just watch the whole episode below, or, better yet, online here. There’s some good additional material on that page, below the main video, including this 3 minute clip on how my time in India, while working with Richard Shweder, helped me to step out of the “matrix.” The producers of the show also created this wonderful feature, to help foster mutual understanding: They asked a well-known blogger from each side to recommend blogs from the OTHER side that they each found helpful and insightful.
Moyers and I talked on camera for about two and a half hours. (He is as lovely, warm, and conversational in real life as he appears on TV. The time flew by.) The producers edited our conversation down to 47 minutes, so there was a lot of material that didn’t make it into the show, including just about every place where I gave credit to my collaborators. So let me at least mention them here:
–My colleagues at YourMorals.org, of whom a picture is flashed up early in the show: Pete Ditto, Jesse Graham, Ravi Iyer, Sena Koleva, Matt Motyl, and Sean Wojcik.
—Emily Ekins, at UCLA, who took the photos of the Tea Party rally, and who is working with me to study Occupy Wall St.
