2018 Highlights


2018 live recordings include various SXSW speakers discussing a range of topics from pop culture to American identity to what’s in Rachel Bloom’s purse. In American Enough, former Barack Obama White House Senior Advisor Vikrum Aiyer takes the stage with the ACLU leader Danielle Silber, Mayor Stephen Benjamin and Ravi Patel examine the challenges fueling divisions in our country, and the opportunities to build bridges among American communities. Culture critic Ira Madison, Grown-ish writer Kara Brown, and entertainment journalist Louis Virtel bring you Keep It! with a discussion about the intersection of pop culture and politics at a time when we’re all obsessing over both.
