Slate poetry editor Robert Pinsky and songwriter John Wesley Harding tackle John Cage’s mythic performance piece. In 1989, the avant-garde composer improvised a 30-minute monologue guided by ten randomly shuffled cards, each featuring a discussion topic. The Threepenny Review editor Wendy Lesser joins the pair for a post-performance Q&A.
