Robert Krulwich began his radio career as a boy in the tub. His pseudonym was Don Roberto and his fist was the microphone. He grew up to be one of the most inventive and compelling reporters in radio. Whether he's explaining interest rates through opera, parsing Reaganomics with the help of "lab mice" or using video to illustrate how viruses work, Krulwich makes understanding complicated subjects fun and easy. Doug will talk with him on Thursday about his career and what makes good radio tick.
