High Brow / Low Brow

AIR DATE: July 15, 2009

To much of America, Las Vegas is the epitome of low-brow American culture. Yet, how do you define high-brow in the age of Youtube, Facebook, iPhones and iTunes. And where does Southern Nevada fit in. Guests include art critic Dave Hickey and free-lance journalist Steve Friess. We are also joined by Rebecca Zisch, a KNPR commentator who teaches Women's Studies at UNLV and Professor Christopher Smit who teaches media studies at Calvin College and is the author of an upcoming book about Britney Spears.
