Journalism professor Robert Quigley, from the University of Texas, joins us to discuss a Washington Post profile of Ben Carson. The famed neurosurgeon turned head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Its an interesting insight into a man who took on the Cabinet position and has more-or-less kept a low profile since. Quigley talks about the man, but we also discuss the story and touch very briefly on the craft of profile writing.
Listen in to see why it feels like learning on the job - maybe. And why that maybe is there.
Quigley, by the way, also runs the Journalism Innovation program at Texas, which is a great follow for those interested in the future of journalism.
