Jon Kalish, an independent radio producer and freelance newspaper reporter based in New York, first met Breslin when Kalish was a young reporter, and over the years, he's covered Breslin's various headline making exploits. Kalish also learned a thing or two about reporting from Breslin, who taught him the importance of climbing tenement stairs. In this half-hour documentary, producer Jon Kalish talks to Breslin's friends, rides along as Breslin sleeps on the streets with New York's homeless, and talks to the columnist right after Breslin broke the story of the city's Parking Violations Bureau kickback scandal.
