        "He's a public media lifer - someone whose entire career has played out on public radio and public television in service to the idea that good, solid, aggressive, ambitious, imaginative journalism still has a place in this world, and that we the people are, or should be, both the funders and stakeholders. He first hit the public radio airwaves, unpaid, in 1973, the year he bought his first radio with money collected at his Bar Mitzvah. His first paid gig was with WTVL, in his hometown of Waterville, Maine, in May 1976 - and from there, David Brancaccio was launched. After graduating from Wesleyan University in 1982, he became, briefly, a newscaster with KQED in San Francisco. He earned a master's degree in journalism from Stanford University and then, not long after, began freelancing for the public radio show Marketplace. He became the show's European editor two years later and, finally, its host in 1993. He spent ten years in that job, remaking the coverage of business from something drab and dour to quirky and cheeky. In 2003, he agreed to co-host the weekly PBS newsmagazine NOW alongside Bill Moyers, who had long been a fan of his work, and the next year, when Moyers retired, the show became Brancaccio's. A winner of a Du-Pont Columbia Award, a Peabody Award, an Emmy, and a Walter Cronkite Award - nearly every honor a journalist of his cast and caliber could hope for - the 49-year-old will soon set sail on a new adventure, as NOW comes to an end this April. But chances are that wherever Brancaccio docks, it will be with the public good foremost on his agenda - and we're all fortunate for that." - Evan Smith, Texas Monthly Talks, Broadcast 03.04.10

          "Forget every other presidential campaign book you've ever read — every candidate confessional, every journalist embed tick tock, every effort, selfless or self-interested, to put back together the Humpty Dumpty pieces of a years-in-the making nomination and general election fight. No other well-reported and written tome can touch the recently released Game Change for its you-are-there authority and juicy, meaty cinematic if not operatic narrative. The subtitle —Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime — says it all, but only in reading this instant best-seller do you get a rounded, portrait of the 2008 presidential election cycle, which turns out to have been even more interesting at the detail level than it appeared in the satellite view. Now in its 12th printing, with 600,000 copies in circulation — so much for the death of the publishing industry — Game Change would not be the phenomenon it is, would not exist, were it not for the access and all-around excellence of its authors, who are our guests this week. Mark Halperin and John Heilemann are veterans of this generation's political wars, having covered innumerable candidates and campaigns. Mark is editor at large and senior political analyst at Time magazine and the former longtime political director of ABC News. John is the national political correspondent at New York magazine. Both have written books before, and both are expert at tracking down the sort of insider anecdotes that are the stuff of the best political reporting, but even they would admit that they've outdone themselves this time. In so many ways, Game Change is, yes, a game changer." - Evan Smith, Texas Monthly Talks, Broadcast 03.25.10

                      "Take it from the Los Angeles Times, The Economist, and other out-of-state soothsayers: If the Democrats have anything approaching a future in our ever-so-slightly-less-red state, and who knows what beyond that, this week's guest, Julian Castro, may be it. He is, they say, the total package: young and handsome and Hispanic and energetic and smart at a time when his party is bereft in many or all of those departments. And ambitious to boot, not in a cloying or annoying way, but in the manner of someone who knows he has something to contribute and can't wait to get to it. Elected mayor of San Antonio last May 9, Castro had guided the nation's seventh-largest and the state's second-largest city thus far with a steady but firm hand, focusing on dinner-table issues like jobs and schools, and has already shown himself to be adept at the permanent campaign aspect of the job, combining old-school retail politics with a flair for twenty-first century tools like video blogging and social media. He had run for mayor once before, in 2005, after serving as a councilman for four years, and he came extremely close to becoming the city's youngest-ever chief executive, winning a plurality on Election Day but losing a runoff. He spent next four years practicing law and his stump speech, waiting for the carousel to come back around. Born in San Antonio to a prominent Chicana activist who mostly raised him and his twin brother by herself, Castro graduated from Stanford University and Harvard Law School. At 35, he is the youngest mayor of the 50 largest American cities - so young that even Barack Obama recently joked that he could be mistaken for an intern. Of course, it wasn't too long ago that they probably made jokes like that about Mr. Obama ... and look how he turned out." - Evan Smith, Texas Monthly Talks, Broadcast 02.25.10
