We spoke to Daniel Zwerdling, NPR journalist extraordinaire, who has spent years reporting on veterans’ rights. He spoke to us about the parallels between journalism and psychology, his best interview techniques, reporting short news stories versus year-long investigations of the government.
UPDATE: Since this episode was published, in February 2018 Zwerdling left NPR following multiple sexual harassment allegations by former and current NPR staffers and interns. Zwerdling has denied the accusations.
