I’m keeping it low key tonight and staying in, catching up on the New Yorker, PBS, and other favorites. I even turned off my Blackberry; not just put it on silent, turned off the power. Crazy, I know.
One of my favorite shows is PBS NOW. The scarcity of long-format journalism/interview programs makes NOW a real highlight of my week (it’s also why I love Charlie Rose). I watched an episode from two weeks ago featuring former Medtronic CEO Bill George. He talks about selfish corporate leaders and how increased volatility is having negative effects on financial markets. It’s a fascinating look into ethics and the large effect they can have on the world around us.
Another great thing about NOW is that you can watch the interview or download it as a podcast.
