I recently attended an exciting “Live Taping” September 17, 2019 of a Podcast Interview for Randy Cohen’s Person Place Thing podcast series, where Randy interviewed Tensie Whelan, Director of NYU Stern’s Center For Sustainable Business. Here is the free link to the podcast:

About RANDY COHEN
Like many New York Times readers, I first came to know Randy’s writing from “The Ethicist,” his weekly column in the Sunday Magazine. Randy created this column and was its first writer for many years. Randy is also an Emmy-Winning TV writer, best-known for his work for The Late Show With David Letterman (“Top 10 Lists,” among many other segments). Randy also is an accomplished Book Author — my two favorites are:
- Be Good: How To Navigate The Ethics Of Everything, by Randy Cohen
- The Good, The Bad, And The Difference: How To Tell Right From Wrong In Everyday Situations, by Randy Cohen (Selected “Letters To The Ethicist,” plus some extra writing he provides in the book)
Randy Cohen, Host of this popular Podcast Series / Radio Program, believes that people are especially interesting and revealing when talking about topics other than themselves. With this in-mind, he created this series, where he asks his guests to tell him about:
- A person who has strongly influenced them,
- A place they have been that they still carry with them, and
- A thing that means a lot to them that they would like to share with Randy and his listeners.
In my favorite segment of Tensie’s interview, Tensie brought in the extraordinary painting shown below (photo) from her home, to discuss with Randy. Rather than tell you anything about the painting, I’ll let you listen to the podcast!
