Iconoclasts: A great series

Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Sir Richard Branson share an hour of "hanging out" in the series Iconoclasts.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit in on conversations between two great minds...people of extremely diverse backgrounds, from different parts of the world whose commonalities lie in their genuine respect for each other's art and the need to constantly better themselves.

That is what the Sundance series "Iconoclasts" is. Now in its fourth season, the series puts together brilliant, but often unlikely pairs of people together for an hour. It makes for fascinating and interesting learning. I can't say that all the pairs have something of interest for me...but the ones that do are fascinating.

(BTW, Sundance is producing some really original stuff with their "the green" channel too)

Yesterday, I watched their first episode of their latest season, a conversation between Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Sir Richard Branson. Watch it if you can...

Here's a promo for the series:
