Larry King is nothing short of THE name in talk shows- he rose from hunble radio beginnings to the most preeminent interview and news shows in the world. But how did he get there? How did he transition from humble and scared radio host to CNN and OraTV's biggest host? Now that he's departed CNN, what can he say is his real political point of view? What happened in his infamous Jerry Seinfeld interview? What is the first question he would ask Osama bin Laden?

Larry King sits down with Cenk Uygur to discuss all this, plus the choices that shaped his career, which is still running strong.

Russell Simmons - founder of Def Jam and Phat Farm, majority shareholder for Global Grind - is famous for his huge career as a hip hop, clothing, media, and all-around business magnate. He's also well-known for his philosophy and social activism. Simmons is undoubtedly very busy, but today he reveals the secret to happiness and personal success-- staying still? In his new book, "Success Through Stillness," Simmons explains the power of meditation and the transformative power something that seems so simple can have over your life.

Russell Simmons talks about all this and more in this special interview with Cenk Uygur!

Michael Hastings is best known for a 2010 interview with General Stanley McChrystal, NATO commander in the Afghanistan war. Comments from the General published in the Rolling Stone magazine interview led President Obama to relieve McChrystal of duty.  In this conversation with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, Hastings talks about his early experiences as a journalist, and explains how some media outlets soften news coverage and inadvertently serve the purpose of supporting the establishment.
