We talk with Jess Walter about his novel “The Cold Millions.” It’s about the first Gilded Age with striking parallels to the Gilded Age 2.0 we’re living in right now.
Then, we revisit our 2015 interview with Lara Vapnek about her biography of one of the historical characters who appears in Walter’s novel: Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. It’s called “Rebel Girl.”

Tidings from Hazel Kahan
Raza Rumi, a Pakistani author, journalist and blogger and follower of Sufi thought talks about the tradition of hospitality, friendship and loyalty and the divergent ways these traditions shape and reflect Eastern and Western cultures. The subject of hospitality holds a certain irony for Raza who was forced to flee from his country after narrowly missing an assassination attempt on his life in Lahore which tragically killed his driver. Produced by Tony Ernst.
