For more than 20 years, Minnesota Public Radio has been bringing world-renowned journalists and correspondents to Minnesota for the MPR News Journalist Series. Every fall and spring, we look behind the scenes at their work in an hour-long live discussion with an MPR News host, as the journalists share insights on their craft, as well as on the people and events they've covered. Everyone is invited to join the discussion. The interview is recorded for later broadcast on MPR News.
