S2S - Vol. 2 - Host of NPR’s It’s Only a Game - Karen Given

January 13, 2019

Karen Given, of Boston NPR station WBUR, has been working in and around the most interesting people in sports on the popular program It's Only a Game. For 20 years she's researched and interviewed sports people with an eye towards what makes their stories interesting from a human point of view. In this podcast she, and host Robert Mattson, will talk on subjects from what makes an ex-NFL player's story interesting to someone like Karen's mother, to the challenges of making a fairly interesting hour long interview into an award winning 10-minute piece.
