My wife and I thought the conversation was worthwhile. It was interesting to hear the personalities of Schwartz, Kaplan, and Kassoff come out and not, just as the posted video of the talk is both what was said and not. During the live conversation, most of what was said was not said and only after thinking about the conversation does a fuller consideration of the conversation emerge and not.
