Twenty years ago, David Carr was an up-and-coming journalist in Washington battling a serious drug addiction. Now, he’s the media columnist at The New York Times. In his new memoir, Carr turns his reporter’s eye on himself, challenging his memories against medical records and interviews with friends and former lovers. He joins Kojo to discusses his personal and professional battles, and the subjectivity of memory.
