American Icons IV on Studio 360

American Icons IV will be a fresh new series of specially produced programs and stories to be broadcast within Studio 360, PRI's one-hour public radio show about the arts, ideas, and humanities which is co-produced with New York Public Radio and aired nationally to over 600,000 listeners. Each week, on-air host Kurt Andersen leads an exploration of creativity and the arts, through feature stories and lively conversations with artists, critics and thought leaders. The goal of the American Icon series is to examine time-tested works of literature, music, film, design, or visual art that have had significant and enduring impact on American culture and society. Consultation and close collaboration with humanities scholars enables the production team to offer general audiences an informative, enlightening, and entertaining exploration of humanities subjects and themes central to our diverse and evolving American culture.
