A Current Look Behind The Scenes At IPR

Apr 21, 2020

The pandemic has forced change on all types of professions, including those in radio journalism. 

On this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer spends the hour visiting with a number of his colleagues here at Iowa Public Radio. The conversation spans from adapting to working from our basements, kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms and even converting closets into sound booths. We also explore both the emotional and technical challenges of working from home.
