In the 1970s photographers were shooting a billion Polaroid photographs each year yet today the company is essentially non-existent. What went wrong? Edwin Land, the founder of Polaroid was a legendary intellectual corporate leader that started out doing research in polarizing filters and ended up revolutionizing photography by creating a totally new technology of film development. As a company, Polaroid was also known for supporting artists like Ansel Adams. Tune in tonight for a history of this amazing corporation when we speak with CHRISTOPHER BONANOS, writer and editor at New York Magazine. His new outstanding and profusely illustrated history is titled INSTANT: THE STORY OF POLAROID.

Inquiry welcomes back editor, writer and chef TAMAR ADLER to talk about eating and cooking in the doldrums of winter. Tamar’s unique book is AN EVER-LASTING MEAL: COOKING WITH ECONOMY AND GRACE and it helps change the way you think about food and cooking. Tune in and learn about the pleasures of lettuce with gravy, making salads with root vegetables, and what to do when you fall out of love with cooking.
