March 16, 2014

Dr. Cornel West

This week on the show we were surprised — and we learned some poignant things — from a typically varied line-up of Red Chair guests.

Philosopher/academic Dr. Cornel West talked about our obligation to help those less fortunate, Pretty Little Liars actor Shay Mitchell broke down the beauty myth and Isabella Rossellini explained the genesis of her documentary nature series Green Porno.

Olympic gold medal-winning short track speed skater Charles Hamelin revealed that Canadians made him cry with their supportive messages and former Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul discussed how his family helped him early in his career.

We also revisited George's interview with Orange Is The New Black star Taylor Schilling. She won't be googling herself.
