An Encore Presentation - America: It's Quirks and Qualities
A conversation about America – its quirks and its qualities – on a special encore presentation of the Emily Rooney Show. We go inside the high-pressure world of presidential debates with longtime NewsHour host and “dean of the moderators” Jim Lehrer. Then, a conversation about the future of the American dream and the state of our country, with one of its most respected journalists: Tom Brokaw. And finally, that same American dream through the eyes of thwarted dreamers and inveterate gamblers at the center of author Steve Almond’s latest collection of stories, God Bless America.
