Dan Barry is a National Treasure. In his long, celebrated career, the New York Times journalist has traveled the 50 states, bringing us stories of both historic and seemingly everyday events from unlikely perspectives (see this week's coverage of 9/11, for a shining example). He is a master at giving voice to the voiceless, people who don't usually get the headlines but should. On the pod, Dan shares tips on how to write about subjects who don’t share your perspective. He also gives his advice for wannabe journalists and explains his secret sauce in making his stories so meaningful.
