If "Reality has a liberal bias," as Stephen Colbert once proclaimed, it must follow that National Public Radio does, too. Longtime NPR reporter and anchor, Susan Stamberg sees that as implicit in the job of journalism, but contends "liberal" is distinctly different than "leftist."

One incidental byproduct of the new book's publication was the discovery of many long lost or forgotten early audio artifacts. One, recalls Stamberg, was among the first personal essay's she wrote and broadcast, inspired by her adult rereading of Mother Goose.
