On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Jonathan Weisman has spent 25 years covering politics, defense, and the economy as a journalist. While on the White House beat for The Wall Street Journal, he spent hours every week on flights to whatever event President Obama was appearing at. Weisman made use of those hours in the sky to write ‘No. 4 Imperial Lane,’ a novel that tells the sometimes dueling, sometimes interweaving stories of punk-student life in 1980s England and war-torn 1970s colonial Africa. We talk with him about his debut as a novelist and what the worlds of decades past can teach us today.
