    #38: About the Wall Street Journal's September 12th 2001 edition (interview with Dean Rotbart, author of 'September Twelfth')

    #38: About the Wall Street Journal's September 12th 2001 edition (interview with Dean Rotbart, author of 'September Twelfth')

    With the 20th anniversary of 9/11 coming up, I speak to Dean Rotbart, author of the book September Twelfth. The book concerns the story of the Wall Street Journal's staff (whose offices were right next to the World Trade Center and rendered unusable by 10am on 9/11), and how they worked together to get a September 12th edition of the paper out. We discuss the Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage, how the other US bureaus helped out with the next day's paper, and an amazing story of the last ever receipt given out at the World Trade Center.

    For this episode of Amy Talks, I speak to ex-Labour Home Secretary Jacqui Smith and we discuss her previous career as a teacher, life in government (including her tenure in various ministerial roles), her time as Home Secretary and how difficult it can be for ex-ministers to obtain employment after leaving politics.

    In this episode of Amy Talks, I speak to Alison Jones (who just so happens to be my mum!) about her running achievements, which include running 50 marathons, and being one of only 1,200 or so people in the world to hold the Abbotts medal. We also discuss what motivated her to start running, how she went from running marathons to running ultra marathons, and she gives her advice on anyone looking to start running or wishing to take their running to the next level.
