Good episode? Give it some love!
Journalist Tom Junod had lost confidence in himself. He was known as cynical, hardened journalist. So it was an inside-joke that he’d be assigned to interview the nicest man in America: Fred Rogers. Junod joins host Krys Boyd to talk about what turned into an unlikely, lifelong friendship with a quiet man who possessed a special power to deeply empathize with children and adults alike. The new movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”– starring Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers – is based on a 1998 article Junod wrote for Esquire.
