My “Which Way, L.A.?” Conversation on James Cuno (also with the Getty&#146s Ron Hartwig) UPDATED with Podcast

Warren Olney, moderator, “Which Way, L.A.?” on Los Angeles Public Radio

I’ll be sharing my thoughts about James Cuno, the incoming president of the J. Paul Getty Trust, on Warren Olney‘s Which Way LA?, broadcast over public radio station KCRW at 7 p.m. LA time (10 p.m. on the East Coast).

My segment is supposed to air at about 7:12 p.m., Western. You’ll be able to listen live here.

I’ll also update this post with the embedded audio, once it’s available online.

The Getty Trust’s vice president for communications, Ron Hartwig, and I actually managed to have a cordial and, I think, interesting conversation, even though I had just criticized Cuno in this post for his “intemperate rhetoric” and his “extremist stance” on cultural-property issues.

You’ll be particularly interested to hear Ron talk about how Cuno’s job interview played out on this hot-button topic (and, later on, you’ll hear my response to that).

Of course, the person I REALLY should have been talking with is Cuno!

UPDATE: Below is the podcast. Our “Getty” segment starts at about 12:09 into the program (after the “Teachers” segment):
