Show Notes

This week at The Media Scrum we have a conversation with Pat Bean, who had five kids by age 25, then talked her way into a newspaper career, where she worked for 37 years. She’s currently writing a memoir, tentatively titled “Between Wars” – that’s her title because she says her first significant bylined story was an interview with a mother whose son had been killed in Vietnam and one of her last pieces of journalism was an opinion column urging President Bush not to send American troops into Iraq during the wake of 9/11. Pat has worked at several newspapers, including those in Fort Worth, Las Vegas, Ogden and Logan.
