A Decade of Disruption - Garrett Peck The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Author Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #454. As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art Of Living author interview series, today’s show is one to listen to. They all are :) But, returning guest, historian, Garrett Peck, has written a new book, A Decade of Disruption. Garrett Peck is a popular guest here on the program, and his new book, again, A Decade of Disruption, is getting rave reviews online already, and it is excellent. We’ll be speaking with Garrett Peck about his new book, A Decade of Disruption, and also about his upcoming Zoom presentation at Smithsonian Associates. Yes, I said “Zoom presentation.” Of course, Smithsonian Associates—the world’s largest museum-based educational program— is presenting a new online learning initiative, Smithsonian Associates Streaming. Live programs through June 11 are offered free of charge with an expanded slate of virtual programming, inspired by the full range of topics Smithsonian Associates offers year-round, available for streaming beginning June 16. It just so happens, that Garrett Peck will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates, June 16, 2020, via Zoom, and the title of his presentation, to coincide with his new book, is A Decade of Disruption: America in the New Millennium. Details are available on our website. As I say, Garrett Peck’s new book is getting rave reviews, and we’ll hear from Garrett Peck about the book, the unprecedented sweep of events and upheavals in the years that spanned 2000 to 2010, The 9/11 terrorist attacks. Enron and WorldCom. The Iraq War. Hurricane Katrina. The disruptive nature of the internet. An anxious aging population redefining retirement. The gay community demanding full civil rights. A society becoming ever more racially diverse. The housing bubble, and much more, including a reading from Garrett Peck, from his new book related to climate change, another catastrophic disruptive event… That of course is our guest today, author, historian, Garrett Peck, reading from his new book, A Decade of Disruption. Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Bette Show, author, historian, Garrett Peck. My thanks to Garrett Peck, author of the new book, A Decade of Disruption.
