Former NPR Reporter Andrea Seabrook

Andrea Seabrook

NPR listeners will no doubt recognize the name Andrea Seabrook. She was the congressional correspondent for many years, until her frustration with what she calls “broken Washington” finally led her to leave the network and begin her own project. That project is called DecodeDC and it’s a podcast and blog where she tries to dig through the jargon and double-speak to determine what’s really going on in and around Capitol Hill. Mark Perzel talks with Andrea Seabrook about her decision to leave NPR and to begin anew in the online world of podcasts and blogs.
