Larry Kramer always made sure you heard him, loud and clear. He was a playwright and a novelist, but he was perhaps best known for his work as an AIDS activist. In the 1980s and 1990s, Kramer sought to alert the world to a plague that was killing millions of people. He woke up the world – through provocative demonstrations, fiery essays, and righteous anger. Kramer died in May.
Guest: Mark Harris, a journalist and writer at New York Magazine.
