Aspen Ideas to Go Podcast: “The Road to Character” with David Brooks and Katie Couric

January 14, 2016  • Tricia Johnson, Guest Blogger

The “Aspen Ideas to Go” podcast is a weekly show featuring fascinating speakers who have presented at the Aspen Ideas Festival and other public programs offered by the Aspen Institute — including Aspen Words, the Alma and Joseph Gildenhorn Book Series, and various events around the country. For a curated listening experience, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or listen to each episode on the Aspen Ideas website.

“I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it”, David Brooks has said about his experience writing his latest New York Times bestseller about personal virtues and honesty in a materialistic age. Yahoo Global Anchor and Aspen Institute Trustee Katie Couric explores this journey with the deeply thoughtful author.
