Chat Room: Grammys Awarded, Bushes Hacked, Soderbergh Out
More than 28 million people tuned in to watch the Grammy Awards — how much do the Grammy's actually have to do with music? Bush family photos are posted online after a hacker breaks into several private email accounts. What kind of a window is it into the former president’s life, and is it a window we should be caught looking through? Also, director Steven Soderbergh says he's retiring from filmmaking. What legacy does he leave behind and how does film fit into the storytelling medium today? Northwest Film Forum’s Lyall Bush, singer and songwriter Rachel Flotard and Three Imaginary Girls co-founder and editor Liz Riley join us to discuss the week's art and culture news.
Also this hour: this summer, Weekday bicycle correspondent Willie Weir and his wife Kat Marriner bicycled across Myanmar (and shared many amazing sounds and photos from the road). Willie joins us to talk about Burma and beyond. Plus, we look into plans for a 3,000-unit housing development slated for Point Wells on Puget Sound.
