338: The Spokesman

Aug 10, 2007
Attention listeners. In the Internet version of Act One of this show, we have left one curse word un-bleeped at a critical moment.

Stories of what can happen when you go from being a private person to a public face.
  • Joe Lockhart was press secretary for President Bill Clinton. He recently told stories from his time on the job—live onstage at a performance space in New York City called The Moth, where regular people share stories about their lives—in front of a boisterous crowd. It turns out that Presidential press secretaries CAN have personality. (6 minutes)

    Thanks to The Moth for the recording. FunnyGovernmentLive Performance
