American Icons III on Studio 360 from PRI and WNYC

The production of a one-hour national public radio series on iconic works of American culture for Public Radio International's Studio 360.

American Icons III is a fresh new series of specially-produced programs and stories to be broadcast within Studio 360. This one-hour public radio show about creativity, the arts and humanities is co-produced by PRI and New York Public Radio and broadcast nationally to over half a million listeners. Each week, on-air host Kurt Andersen leads an exploration of the arts and ideas that are shaping our culture through feature stories and lively conversations with artists and thought leaders. The goal of the American Icons series is to examine classic works of literature, music, film, architecture, design or visual art that have achieved the status of an "icon" in American culture, in a more in-depth, research-based manner than is possible for regular segments in the weekly show. American Icons takes the sophisticated, nuanced discussion that would be found in a graduate-level classroom and produces those conversations in an entertaining and accessible format for a wide audience.
