Scott Simon and Jacki Lyden Provide a Glimpse Behind the Scenes at NPR

On May 7th, 2012, we welcomed Scott Simon, host of NPR's Weekend Edition, and Jacki Lyden, correspondent and guest host for Weekend Edition and All Things Considered, as well as many other NPR programs.  In 1979, Jacki Lyden and Scott Simon helped to pioneer NPR's Chicago Bureau.  Thirty-three years later, the pairl shared stories about their experiences at NPR and beyond — experiences that brought them to Kosovo, Kabul, Sarajevo, and even Genesee Depot.

Listen to Jacki Lyden's 2006 All Things Considered story, The Fabulous Lunts, Alive at Ten Chimneys at NPR's web site.
