FROM THIS EPISODE

For more than 50 years, John Lewis has been a leading figure of the Civil Rights movement, and for nearly 30 he's represented Georgia in Congress. At the New Yorker Festival, Lewis told David Remnick about how he's stuck by his commitment to nonviolence, and remained optimistic about social progress in an institution everybody agrees is dysfunctional. And in a singular interview, Paul Simon walks through the process of writing a song -- line by line.
