Another HUGE debate tonight: Will I eat tacos for dinner…again? Full roundtable coverage tomorrow.
Today on Stand Up!
Another packed, wild show! With:
NYU Bioethicist and prolific author, including the recent “Ethics in Mental Healthcare: A Reader,” Arthur Caplan on the ethics of providing healthcare to sections of society that need it most and can afford it least.
Jeffrey E. Stern is a Pulitzer Center Fellow for Crisis Reporting and author of the new book, “The Last Thousand: One School’s Promise in a Nation at War.” He spoke to us today about that book, his time spent reporting from Afghanistan, and what pulled him into a journalist’s life to begin with.
Adam Glyn and Pete go way back, before Adam worked as a field journalist for TMZ, even. We ribbed him on his employer a little before we praised him for his new game/show, “South of Wilshire.”
Then, Pete welcomed Fergus M. Bordewich to the program to discuss the newest of the seven books he’s authored, “The First Congress: How James Madison, George Washington and a Group of Extraordinary Men Invented the Government.” The well-named historian opened our eyes to amazing facets of the era in which America was founded.
Our last guest today was certainly not the least. Fran Drescher is the actress known to most Americans who lived through the 90s as, “The Nanny.” Currently, she stars in “Happily Divorced” on TV Land and is the voice of “Eunice” in the “Hotel Transylvania” animated films. Today, she joined Pete to discuss the causes she supports with her time, money and effort, namely the Go Red for Women campaign in conjunction with Macy’s and the American Heart Association.
