As a public radio reporter, editor and host, Neal Conan covered many of the most significant news events of the past several decades. While reporting on the first Gulf War, he was held captive by Iraqi soldiers. But most public radio listeners know Conan as the final host of NPR's daily call-in show, "Talk of the Nation." We'll talk to him about the future of public broadcasting and his current projects -- including his ongoing multimedia collaboration with Celtic Folk chamber group Ensemble Galilei.

Host: Michael Krasny
