Common Ground: Seattle P-I columnist Joel Connelly
We're delighted to have as our guest Joel Connelly, longtime scribe for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (seattlepi.com). Joel regales us with tales from his career in journalism covering politics and environmental issues, plus his earlier days as a volunteer for Eugene McCarthy in the 1968 presidential campaign and staffer for George McGovern in '72. Politics has certainly changed over the years: Joel notes that campaign fundraisers not only used to be open to the press, but they were bipartisan! This episode is longer than usual because there were just too many fascinating topics for us to cover. Enjoy!
