Vice talks to the most important people in the contemporary American political scene, and sometimes to the least important (who are very special, nonetheless).

"Lewis Lapham, Part 1"

December 24, 2010
A few weeks back, VBS correspondent Eddy Moretti sat down with Lewis Lapham, the historian and wordsmith at the helm of Lapham’s Quarterly. Published four times a year, the journal tackles sweeping cultural topics, pulling editorial support from friends like Sophocles, Groucho Marx, and George Packer. Prior to founding the eponymous magazine, Lapham was the editor of Harper’s Weekly, where he still acts as correspondent and editor. Tune in as Lapham gives current events the historical treatment and explains the happy marriage between the media and money.
