Don describes a typical day on the hectic White House beat (or rather that there aren’t many typical days) and recalls some of his most memorable moments covering the Bush Administration. He talks about some of the challenges of his demanding job and gives us an overall assessment of the state of NPR.
Gonyea talks about how technology has evolved over the years and how it has dramatically impacted the way he works and files stories. Don offers his advice to young people who want to be the Don Gonyeas of tomorrow and reflects on his time at MSU and how it has shaped the man he is.
Hosted by Russ White.
