Bill Dries, Senior Reporter for the Memphis Daily News; Kontji Anthony, reporter for Action News 5; and Don Wade, also from the Memphis Daily News, join host Eric Barnes for this week's discussion.

My mother introduced me to WKNO-FM and public radio long before I can remember. I suppose the first thing I really recall about WKNO-FM is that every afternoon, when my mother picked me up from school, the radio was tuned-in to The World, then All Things Considered, probably beginning around age 8. The way these reporters and hosts took you from the comfort of your mom's van to wherever in the world they were reporting from absolutely fascinated me. From then on, I was officially hooked.
