Progressive historian, analyst, social critic, public intellectual, anti-imperialist, and wit (not to mention novelist and screenwriter) GORE VIDAL is fondly remembered in this tribute. Vidal is in fine form as he holds forth in two interviews, from 2005 and 2003. Brief introduction by K.D.
Thanks to the U.S. program Five o'Clock Shadow (2012, containing the 2005 interview) and the Australian program Dateline (2003) for the Vidal audio. I have excerpted from, edited, and condensed both programs.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "first floor") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Gore Vidal died July 31, 2012.

This is an "All-new episode!" (as they say in TV ads), first broadcast in August 2019.
