Review of Lee Strasberg

Is this supposed to be just 59 seconds? Both segments 1 and 2 have the same 59 second... promo (?). Maybe unintentional, but Strasberg saying a couple of words is not good enough a reason to be on PRX as a piece. Let's hope, hope the full piece has not mistakenly been uploaded.
