Host Harry Kreisler discusses his new book, "Political Awakenings," and tells the story of the Conversations series. Kreisler traces the origins of the program, describes his vision of the craft of interviewing, and talks about the ways technology dramatically increased access to the programs creating a global audience. He then discusses the origin of the book and its content. Choosing twenty interviews from the 485 in the Conversations archive, he focused on those interviewees that stand out because the subjects came to see their world in a radically different way, with important implications for The World.
