Robert Caro won a Pulitzer for his first biography, an in-depth and well-received look at Robert Moses and his impact on 20th century New York. Caro began researching that book when he was a newspaper reporter fascinated by the idea of political power and the unexpected places where it could be found. That project led to more questions about political power, more volumes of biography, and more awards. Caro is now four volumes into his biography of President Lyndon Johnson, and has earned another Pulitzer, a National Book Award and a National Humanities Medal. The latest book in his series about LBJ, The Passage of Power, examines Johnson’s life from 1958 to 1964 – an extraordinary time in our nation’s history and in Johnson’s career.

We hope you’ll be there as Overheard with Evan Smith continues a second season of great conversation with fascinating people, always on the news and always with a sense of humor. The show features in-depth interviews with a mix of guests from politics, the arts, literature, journalism, business, sports and more, and reaches PBS viewers from California to Florida.
