Sister Joan Chittister describes how the Vatican's tone toward nuns has changed and shares her hopes for the Catholic church.
19th-century painter Thomas Cole founded America’s first art movement, and his student Frederic Church carried it on. Here & Now’s Robin Young visits their homes, now historic sites, in New York’s Hudson Valley, to see what inspired the Hudson River School to “find God in nature.” We also learn about their direct descendant, 58-year-old Stephen Hannock, who rips into his painting with power tools, and has fans from rock star Sting, to great museums like the Met.
