In this episode, recorded over a decade ago, Jeff Carreira speaks with the biographer Robert D. Richardson, who died last month. In this conversation he discusses his writings on Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and William James. Richardson devoted 10 years to researching and writing each of these three biographies and each presents a detailed picture that brings the personalities of these men and their achievements vividly to life. In the wake of his recent passing, we want to honor Robert D. Richardson by offering this interview for you to listen to and enjoy.
