Person Place Thing Episode 11: John Hockenberry

Dec 5, 2011

Throughout John Hockenberry's career as a journalist, he has shown a disconcerting willingness to put himself in danger, covering wars in the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Kosovo and Afghanistan and, perhaps most dangerous of all, writing a scathing review of a Clint Eastwood movie. That piece, circulated as Million Dollar Bigot, raised significant issues to the disability community and beyond. He describes some of this in his book Moving Violations: War Zones, Wheelchairs and Declarations of Independence. John has won four Emmys and three Peabodies, and hosts PRI’s "The Takeaway."

Person: Journalist George Seldes Place: Central square in Bucharest the Christmas night Ceausescu fell Thing: A 1938 Remington typewriter he brought to Romania
