Live From Kepler's Books every Wednesday in 2017! By special arrangement with Kepler's Books and Kepler's Literary Foundation, we record fresh In Deep with Angie Coiro interviews every Wednesday at Kepler's in Menlo Park, in front of a live audience. Seating is limited; reserve your tickets here.

Thursday, August 17, 7:30pm: James Forman, Jr., Locking Up Our Own
Marion Barry, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, and Johnnie Cochran are not names you would associate with the staggering incarceration rates plaguing black and minority communities across the country.
Yet, as James Forman writes in his new book, Locking Up Our Own, it's undeniable that the urgency and good-intentioned politics of black leaders in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, as they sought to reduce crime and curb out-of-control drug addiction, has unspooled now, decades later, into a devastating tally of young men whose lives have been lost to the penal system.
Angie sits down with Forman, a professor at Yale Law School, to discuss the impact black leaders have had on mass incarceration rates and the deleterious effects of punitive justice and the American reform system.

Wednesday, August 23, 12:00pm: Scott Hartley, The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World
A contrarian perspective from a leading venture capitalist who contends that the future of advanced technological breakthroughs will come from college graduates who majored in the social sciences and humanities (the Fuzzies) as opposed to the more hardcore science concentrators (the Techies).
Scott Hartley is a venture capitalist, has been an investment partner on Sand Hill Road, a Presidential Innovation Fellow at the White House, and worked at Google, Facebook, and Harvards Berkman Center.

In Deep with Angie Coiro

Live From Kepler's Books every Wednesday! Come see us record our broadcast/podcast show at Menlo Park’s venerable Kepler’s Books, a community home to discourse and ideas for sixty years. In Deep began as The Angie Coiro Show on the San Francisco radio dial in 2009. It's evolved into a syndicated show heard across the country. We cast a sharp, inquisitive eye on America’s cultural underpinnings: politics, art, and society. We bring you good conversations that matter, with heart and a sense of humor. Kepler’s tradition is right in line with our own. The store was founded by a peace activist in 1955. It provided an early home for the Grateful Dead, and held social and political salons that prefigured its current packed slate of events. With partner Peninsula Arts and Letters, Kepler’s has created a vibrant community for thought-provoking dialogue and smart entertainment. We’re glad you’re listening. And we’d love to see you at Kepler’s! Most shows are free. The occasional Premium Shows carry a $10 charge. Reservations for both are available via our Kepler’s ticket page. Show and guest suggestions are always welcome. Send us an email, visit our Facebook page, or reach out via Twitter. See you at Kepler’s! Angie
