What a treat it was today to help WBUR host the BBC Newshour team here in Boston!
Owen Bennett-Jones hosted two hours from our studios, with the help of ace producers Golda Arthur, Lucy Walker and Paul Shuster.
I communicate with these folks on the other side of the pond every day because Here and Now has a partnership with the BBC that gives us access to journalists like Owen, so putting faces on names and voices I hear over the phone line was a nice way to spend the morning.
Golda and Paul were gone in a flash, headed to Philadelphia to produce a special Newshour show on Friday. We were lucky to have Owen and his famous red sox on Here and Now. Have fun in Philly guys.
