Belsky on journalism and a lot of other stuff

The latest EconTalk is Gary Belsky, the editor of ESPN the Magazine talking about his career, business journalism, sports, sports journalism, soccer, Monty Python, trivia and some other stuff along the way. Gary is world-class great talker, one of the few people who can speak as qucikly as Richard Epstein while always staying coherent, fascinating, and funny. The first 25 minutes or so are about his career–how he went from being a business journalist to a sports journalist. The rest is about what it’s like to run a major American magazine. This is part of an occasional series at EconTalk talking to people about what their jobs are like day-to-day.
