! In this final week of August, he and the Q team are gearing up to launch an all new season. Don't forget to tune in September 2nd for all new shows and, yes, your daily Q essay!
- Jian's interview with Dov Charney - the Montreal-born CEO and founder of clothing manufacturer and retailer American Apparel, which prides itself on a "sweatshop free," fair wages domestic factories. Given the lax regulations that led to the deaths of over a thousand garment workers in the Bangladesh tragedy, is Charney right to be critical of other international manufacturer, and proud of his own business practices?

- Jian's interview with multi-talented actor and singer Mandy Patinkin. His career has seen him go from winning Tonys for his work in musical theatre to Emmys for his TV work in Chicago Hope, and most recently, the massively popular thriller, Homeland. He also won a Golden Globe for his movie role in Yentl. LISTEN
- Jian's interview with funk pioneer, bassist Bootsy Collins. His '70s collaborations with James Brown, George Clinton in Parliament-Funkadelic, and later as a solo artist, Bootsy Collins' bass playing helped form the basis for what funk music is. LISTEN
