Every Life Is Interesting
About This Show
Gimme an ordinary life; I'll give you an extraordinary story. The podcast's host, Paul Ruderman, interviews everyday people with extraordinary life stories, and tries to discern the unique arc of their singular lives. With each guest, Paul seeks to understand both their professional AND personal development across their life… exploring both the external (what they did and how they did it) and the internal (their thinking and feeling along the way) so that by interview’s end, we’ve painted a three-dimensional, complex and yes, interesting, life.

Episode 11: Jim Axelrod (Anchor, Saturday CBS Evening News)

Jim Axelrod may be best known for anchoring the CBS Evening News on Saturdays, or he may be best known as the long-time, first-rate reporter for CBS News. But I'm interviewing him here because he is the author of my favorite book of the past ten years, In The Long Run, the autobiographical story of his life and his relationship with his father, as told through the prism of running and training for a marathon, and growing up in a fairly standard family life in America. Jim's account of his life, and the way he articulates his life experiences, both on the campaign trail with Hillary and Obama, and in his relationships with his family, are nothing short of stunning. A deep look at a most interesting life. I loved partaking in this interview, or really, conversation with Jim.
