In this special commencement episode, we look at five speeches delivered during commencement week at Harvard. Students, Deans, and celebrities alike find themselves promoting familiar (some would even say cliché) ideas in their speeches. Featuring speeches by Al Gore, Sheryl Sandberg, and others, this episode raises the question: do these speeches have anything left to say? The answer: it depends.
