Episode XIX: "You have literally no idea and very little control over what that person you just spoke to is going to do with that material."
In this installment, Dave Itzkoff talks about Janet Malcolm's The Journalist and the Murderer, ambiguity between reporter and subject, writing about his father, and more.
