About The Open Mind

Hosted by Alexander Heffner, The Open Mind is a thoughtful excursion into the world of ideas across politics, media, technology, the arts, and all realms of civic life. First broadcast in 1956, it explores challenges of the digital age, American politics and emerging issues. These conversations are a primary resource to the public, students, teachers, researchers, and archivists.
