Aspen Ideas Festival - Transportation in the 21st Century

Transportation for the 21st Century

Americans took over 10 billion trips on public transit in 2012—that’s the highest number since 1957. At the same time, 2013 has been dubbed the year of the bikeshare as more and more cities establish their own bikeshare programs. As Americans in both urban and rural communities increasingly demand a wider range of transportation options, what can local and federal transportation planners do to give them what they want? Ray LaHood will offer his vision of what the next generation of transportation looks like—from high-speed bullet trains to smart cars capable of talking to one another. You can be sure that it won’t be your grandparents’ transportation system.

Ray LaHood & Ronald Brownstein

Aspen Ideas Festival - What Do TV Shows Tell Us About Ourselves?

What Do TV Shows Tell Us about Ourselves?

How much can we learn about our society through our TV shows? Can they break social barrier, or even help catalyze social change? Writer/producers of some of television’s most influential programs and characters—James Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda, Taxi, The Simpsons) and Brian Grazer (24, Parenthood, Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights)—consider what relationship onscreen life has to real life.

James L. Brooks, Kurt Andersen
