HOUR 1: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter

‘Who controls the end of life?’ God? The government? The medical profession? Or us? How important is quality of life and should each individual be able to choose for themselves how and when their life ends? Or should this be mandated by the state? Is euthanasia giving dignity in death to people at the end with no quality of life? Or is it a slippery slope? Should the individual’s desire for autonomy trump blanket legislation? Or is it the government’s job to preserve life even against the wishes of the individual? Join the conversation!

HOUR 2: (Begins at 52:30 mins) Arts Interview with Nancy Horan


I interview Nancy Horan, New York Times best-selling fiction author of Loving Frank and Under The Wide And Starry Sky. Her debut novel, Loving Frank, explores the true story behind American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his lover, Mamah Borthwick Cheney. It was translated into 16 languages, remained on the New York Times best-seller list for over a year, and was awarded the James Fenimore Cooper Prize for Best Historical Fiction as well as being voted one of the best books of 2007 by The Washington Post and Chicago Tribune amongst other newspapers. Her eagerly awaited second novel, Under The Wide And Starry Sky tells the passionate love story of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his intrepid American wife, Fanny. We’ll talk about her life, work and why she likes to write fact as fiction. More info at
