Eric Roper

Eric Roper is one of the best young journalists in America.


His humble beginnings as editor of the George Washington University student newspaper and a correction controversy over the phase-out of an unofficial hippo mascot (and how it haunts him);

What it's like to cover a city, Minneapolis, and all of its many data points for the Star Tribune;

Tales from his time covering the United States Congress;

Why, he says, “Journalism is a very emotional business for me" (a frank talk about the neurosis of news)

A strong episode with a sharp reporter, so check it out!
