Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was not a simple show. And Fred Rogers was not a simple man. He was radical. Spiritual. Revolutionary. Maybe even subversive. Bestselling author and cultural critic Carvell Wallace hosts this 10-part series about the life, thinking and work of Fred Rogers, and asks what the cardigan wearing host of a decades-old children's show can tell us about how to get by in today's chaotic world. Produced in partnership with Transmitter Media.

Like a lot of people, I've been thinking a lot about Mr. Rogers and his legacy lately. For me, that started early last year when I read Tom Junod's 1998 Esquire profile of Mr. Rogers, and then really took off that summer when I saw the documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? This show makes a great companion piece to that documentary, I think. It covers some of the same events and ideas that the film did, but it goes beyond that with new interviews and conversations that try to get at not just why Mr. Rogers was important to us, but how we can take his ideas and use them now, as adults living in the world today. Listening to this show, I find myself inspired to be a better and kinder person, and to do more to help take care of this world and the people in it.
