It's been fifty years since the founding of NPR. And, four prominent women shaped the content and the sound of the new network. Lisa Napoli has written a new book about them entitled, "Susan, Linda, Nina and Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR.” Host Don Rush talked with her about their struggles and their legacies.

Author Lisa Napoli will be available via Zoom conducted by Browseabout Books on Monday Afternoon.
