This Old Mole episode is hosted by Denise Morris (pictured here), and features discussions of how the system limits the actions of Presidents; two movies about mothers and sons; whether "Hell is other people" (as a line in Sartre's play No Exit has it); and whether the right to marry is what LGBT people should be fighting for.
