50 Years Of NPR's Political Coverage


This month NPR is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and to commemorate the moment we're looking back on the women who shaped how NPR has covered the biggest political stories. Linda Wertheimer, Nina Totenberg, and Mara Liasson built NPR's political coverage from the ground up and take us into the rooms where history was made.

This episode: White House correspondent Scott Detrow and White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe.
