As part of Diane's remote author interview series, she had the chance to speak with Ann Patchett in January over video Zoom as a live audience watched. Here's that conversation.
During the last two years of The Diane Rehm Show, Diane had a go-to rebroadcast for those days she and her staff took off for Thanksgiving. It was a conversation with Matthieu Ricard, and she and her staff felt it was a perfect way to kick off the holiday season.
Ricard is a trained scientist, a Buddhist monk and a best-selling author who has written extensively about happiness and finding meaning in life. He joined Diane in 2015 to discuss his book, “Altruism: The Power Of Compassion To Change Yourself And The World.”
- Matthieu Ricard Buddhist monk and scientist; international bestselling author of "Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill" and "The Monk and the Philosopher"
