Debbie talks to designer Bonnie Siegler about her career and about the conflict between designers and their clients. "The clients aren’t the problem, the clients aren’t jerks, they’re not assholes, it’s not that they have bad taste, or anything like that. Sometimes they just have no idea how to interact with professional creative people."

Debbie talks to composer Nico Muhly about his music and about the musicians who interpret it. "I always feel like they appreciate something that’s detailed on the page to indicate that I know what I’m talking about, but with room for them to continue the conversation when I’m dead."

On this podcast Debbie talks to Krista Tippet about her religious orientation, her struggle with depression, and about why it’s so hard to understand our historical moment.
