It's Tough To Get A Man To Understand Something When His Salary Depends On His Not Understanding It


John and Marcia take some time to reflect in this episode about some the issues they’ve discussed on the show during their five years in Western North Carolina on BPR – and how there has been significant movement on some, and very little on others.

Matt Bush joined Blue Ridge Public Radio as news director in August 2016. Excited at the opportunity the build up the news service for both stations as well as help launch BPR News, Matt made the jump to Western North Carolina from Washington D.C. For the 8 years prior to coming to Asheville, he worked at the NPR member station in the nation's capital as a reporter and anchor. Matt primarily covered the state of Maryland, including 6 years of covering the statehouse in Annapolis. Prior to that, he worked at WMAL in Washington and Metro Networks in Pittsburgh, the city he was born and raised in.
