Once again this week, our red chair guests said some memorable, surprising and funny things. Olympian Kaya Turski talked about her relationship with fear, Keanu Reeves and Tiger Chen talked about the philosophy of tai chi (and the possibility of George fighting with 80 year olds), author Chuck Palahniuk explained why he prefers journalistic writers to academics. 

Jefferson Bethke, author of Jesus > Religion, talked about his mom's "gay lifestyle" and his faith, and Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, spoke out with his own perspective on gay rights.
