Regular Morning Edition and All Things Considered listeners are familiar with the reporting of NPR National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson, who provides extensive coverage on the people and policies that shape our nation. In Cincinnati recently, Mara Liasson talked with WVXU’s Howard Wilkinson about covering politics in Washington, DC and beyond the Beltway. Ms. Liasson is speaking at the Montgomery Women’s Club Town Hall Lecture Series this evening.
Ira Flatow is the longtime host of NPR’s Science Friday, which airs at 2:00 every Friday afternoon on WVXU. He takes a few minutes to join our Dean Regas for this edition of Looking Up. He talks about how Science Friday got started, where his love of science came from, and what he hopes listeners take away from each broadcast.
NPR listeners will no doubt recognize the nameAndrea Seabrook. She was the congressional correspondent for many years, until her frustration with what she calls “broken Washington” finally led her to leave the network and begin her own project. That project is called DecodeDC and it’s a podcast and blog where she tries to dig through the jargon and double-speak to determine what’s really going on in and around Capitol Hill. Mark Perzel talks with Andrea Seabrook about her decision to leave NPR and to begin anew in the online world of podcasts and blogs.
