William H. "Bill" Siemering is a radio innovator and advocate, former member of the NPR, and the author of its original "mission statement," the National Public Radio Purposes.
Why do you report a story or produce a podcast and send it out into the world? What gives you purpose? What do you stand for? Rob finds meaning from the original NPR mission statement. He talks to Bill Siemering about writing the statement in 1970, the first broadcast of All Things Considered, and what inspires Bill to work in radio for several decades -- the power of the human voice.
