People leave work early so they can get home to watch The Beat with Ari Melber. Ari will explore the world of cable news and how he manages to keep it all straight when events are cascading around us minute by minute (including the names of all the Russian oligarchs). Joining him will be one of his favorite hip-hop bands, plus Roger McNamee, author of Zucked which the New York Times calls "superb...stirring...robust and helpful", as well as, Chapter VII of our serialized novella "Author to Come" written by author Shalom Auslander (Foreskin's Lament, Hope: a Tragedy). Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA Ann Temkin will explain how a painting gets to the museum and it isn't by Uber. Jazz Legend Jay Leonhart leads the 1-Train Band.
