Meeting In The Mountains: 1A At The Aspen Ideas Festival

Big, brave, innovative thinking is what the annual Aspen Ideas Festival encourages. This year, 1A joined the event in Aspen, Colorado, for conversations about current events, politics, law, economics and social trends. Today, we take you back to our June 26 conversation with Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, about the government's role in healthcare, and Kitty Boone, executive director of the Aspen Ideas Festival, about why she continues to bring people together outside the Beltway. Then, in our midweek conversation with Ambassador Wendy Sherman, chief U.S. negotiator in the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, we ask how her past as a social worker and community organizer helped prepare her for diplomacy. She talks us through the Iran nuclear deal, the state of relations with Iran and Syria, and what to do about North Korea.
