[UPDATE — thanks to Jen Chang for supplying the original audio and to Bill Shewbridge at UMBC’s New Media Studio for uploading it — LISTEN HERE!]
A while back I sat down for a chat with WYPR’s Sheilah Kast. We talked about the Erickson School masters class I co-teach with Judah Ronch. In particular, we discussed the way we use Shakespeare’s “King Lear” to explore the full depth and meaning of aging and longevity.
We had a great time doing the interview together and she wound up submitting the interview for an award.
Drum roll, please…
Radio Specialty Reporting
“King Lear: A Study in Aging”
A fascinating look at the challenges of aging and relationships and how Shakespeare’s King Lear can serve as a model for addressing various issues. Kast is an intelligent interviewer who asks the type of questions many listeners would if they had the opportunity to talk to the guest.
Way to go Sheilah!
I’ll see if I can find the link to the original interview [POSTED ABOVE].
