E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post is a frequent presence on WAMC's airwaves, discussing the news of the week with David Brooks each Friday on All Things Considered. On Friday, he did his NPR segment from WAMC's studios in Albany and stopped by the Roundtable during his visit. His latest book Why The Right Went Wrong is now out in paperback.

New York Times columnist David Brooks visited our region this weekend to receive an honorary degree at Skidmore College’s commencement ceremony in Saratoga Springs.  Brooks is familiar to WAMC listeners as a political analyst for National Public Radio whose Friday segments with E.J. Dionne are required week-in-review listening.  He spoke with WAMC's Ian Pickus about his advice to young people and the political week that was.
