KPFK AWARE SHOW
December 30, 2004 Guest Terrence McNally
Topic: Terrance McNally interviews Sam Harris, author of End of Faith
A few years out of Harvard, Terrence McNally left Boston and teaching for Los Angeles and the entertainment industry. He wanted to reach larger audiences. After twenty years as an actor, director, screenwriter (Earth Girls Are Easy — starring Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, and Jim Carrey), songwriter and record producer (classic novelty songs and Julie Brown’s Goddess in Progress, #4 EP in the Village Voice 1985 Critics Poll), he realized he wasn’t fulfilling his vision. Now it all comes together in his media and consulting work, as he seeks, spreads, and encourages stories of a world that just might work. On his weekly radio show in Los Angeles (KPFK 90.7fm) and New York (WBAI 99.5fm), McNally engages the most visionary thinkers, writers, and doers he can find to make sense of the current moment and shed light on the path ahead. www.aworldthatjustmightwork.com
