MiB: The Simpson’s Harry Shearer

For this 3 day weekend edition of Masters in Business, we speak with Harry Shearer of The Simpsons, Spinal Tap and SNL.

Perhaps best known for the many characters he gives life to on The Simpsons for the past 26 years, including Principal Skinner, Kent Brockman, Mr. Burns, Waylon Smithers, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Dr. Hibbert, Lenny Leonard, Otto Mann, Rainier Wolfcastle, Dr. Marvin Monroe and many others.

His radio program Le Show covers topical issues and politics. Shiller, a resident of New Orleans, made a documentary about Katrina called “The Big Uneasy,” where he makes the case that Katrina was an “Unnatural Disaster.” Appropriately, our conversation took place on Katrina’s 10th anniversary.

Listen to it live today on Bloomberg Radio at 10am and 6pm and throughout the weekend. The full podcast is available on iTunesSoundCloud and on Bloomberg.  Earlier podcasts can be found on iTunes and at BloombergView.com.

Next week, we speak with Jason Zweig, author of the Devil’s Financial Dictionary.
