On Monday night, WFMT's Critical Thinking with Andrew Patner featured the first half of a lengthy interview with former Reader staff writer John Conroy, who most recently blogged the Burge trial for Vocalo, and current editor/columnist Michael Miner. It's compelling listening even if you're familiar with the case, ranging from the idea of a "torturable class," why you should do your investigative reporting when you're young, why the dailies weren't interested in the Burge story for years, and features a cameo by Jimmy Stewart.
