Albany, NY – This week, Gretchen talks with author Deborah Cohen about her book "Household Gods: The British and their Possessions". The book chronicles one hundred years of British interiors and looks at the way the British developed their mania for interiors, furniture, and decoration. Cohen talks about the role of morality and religion in the way people think about their homes and their possessions, explores the current state of consumerism in America, and much more.
