Inquiry welcomes award-winning journalist, columnist and writer CRAIG BROWN. His thoroughly enjoyable brilliant new book is HELLO GOODBYE HELLO: A CIRCLE OF 101 REMARKABLE MEETINGS. These unlikely but true meetings, some brief, some over years, include people from royalty, politics, film and the arts. All of them are by turns humorous, sad, bizarre and surprising. Tune in and learn what happened when a young Madonna opened a door and came face to face Martha Graham, when Jackie Kennedy discussed art with
Queen Elizabeth II, when Gurdjieff made everyone eat sauerkraut at Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, and when Alec Guiness had a psychic moment with James Dean.

The Nazis reviled Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and considered it a danger to the Third Reich. They referred to it as the worst example of “Jewish science” and “scientific dadaism”. Why was Einstein’s work on space and time such a threat to the Nazis? Was there something uniquely Jewish about how Einstein came up with his theory? Tune in tonight for a unique and thought-provoking conversation with STEVEN GIMBEL. He is the Edwin T. and Cynthea Shearer Johnson Professor for Distinguished Teaching in the Humanities and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Gettysburg College. His new book is EINSTEIN’S JEWISH SCIENCE: PHYSICS AT THE INTERSECTION OF POLITICS AND RELIGION.
