Listen to audio of Wright’s interviews and appearances on radio and on stage.
Wright sits down with WBUR’s On Point to discuss the 15th anniversary of 9/11, his new book The Terror Years, and where we are now, in the age of terrorism.
Longform.org features Wright on their podcast, during their visit to Austin for SXSW. Features quotes like this gem:
"If I had the chance to interview Osama Bin Laden, should I kill him? It’s a fair question. Suppose we’re having dinner — should I stab him with the bread knife? Do I have a moral obligation to kill him? Or do I have a moral obligation as a reporter to simply hear him?"
