David Broder of The Washington Post joins Bob to talk politics. Next, once called “the American Olivier” by critic Frank Rich, actor Kevin Kline’s film and stage honors include an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for A Fish Called Wanda (1988), and two Tony Awards, for On the Twentieth Century (1978) and Pirates of Penzance (1981). In his latest film The Extra Man, Kline plays Henry Harrison, an aspiring playwright who makes his living as a male escort for wealthy older New York women.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, Bob talks with curator Dan Gediman about the essay of journalist Lucy Freeman. She covered mental health and social welfare subjects for The New York Times. Her first book Fight Against Fears detailed her own psychoanalytic treatment for social fears and insomnia. Freeman went on to write more than 70 books ranging from psychology topics to mystery novels. [Broadcast Date: July 30, 2010]
