Life After Journalism

LIFE AFTER JOURNALISM

Lori Price had spent almost 2 decades doing what she loved - reporting for a newspaper. But when the recession hit, like many journalists, Lori was strongly encouraged to accept a buy-out, which she did. She moved back home to Texas and had a lot of trouble finding work. Lori is now working 5 jobs - from college instructor to house cleaner - to try to weather the economic storm. Lori talks to Dick Gordon about the challenges of trying desperately to get a job that in your heart of hearts, you don't really want.

Dr. Tony Redmond is an emergency medicine physician. He has traveled around the world to help injured people after crises. Dick Gordon spoke with Tony the day before he hopped a flight to Haiti. Tony is now in Britain, and he joins Dick to talk about the work he did there.
