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  

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Theory of Relativity, this talk takes a look at Albert Einstein’s creativity. Where did it come from, how was it reflected in his life, and what can we learn from it? Biographer and Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson brings the physicist’s creativity to life through historical details and insights, as discussed in his book “Einstein: His Life and Universe.”
