My Final Podcast for BusinessWeek


I left our 46th floor multimedia studio for the last time this week after recording my 209th "Behind the Cover" podcast as BusinessWeek's executive editor. It feels like only yesterday when I walked into that studio for the first time in September of 2005 to begin these weekly podcasts in which I interview the author of the magazine's cover story. Since then, more than 12 million of these podcasts have been downloaded and it has consistently ranked among the top business podcasts in the world on iTunes. For years, I have been honored to receive countless letters, emails, and phone calls from listeners who told me how much they enjoyed these recordings. Dozens of fans also have approached me at conferences, seminars, and panel discussions at which I have participated, each of them going out of their way to say thank you. So let me (yes, that's me above in the studio) return the thanks to all of you for listening.

It's been a great ride to sit in a studio, with my friend, colleague and producer Jaime Beauchamp at the controls, and interview yet another journalist I respect and admire about his or her work. Through it all, I always tried to make these conversations honest, smart, and candid--a little peek at the magic in a hidden newsroom process between an editor and a writer. This last one, with London Bureau Chief Stanley Reed, can be heard here and is entitled "Why Dubai Matters: A Look at the Crisis in the Gulf."

A trademark of sorts to each of these podcasts is my selection of a song to open and close every recording. As my Tweeps know full well, I often tweeted the barebones of what the story would be and asked for their song choices. We've selected everything from jazz and popular music to classic and alternative rock. For this final podcast, I picked one of my obsessive favorites, Frank Sinatra. The tune: "That's Life." I think it works on a lot of levels. What do you think?
