WV25: Reminiscing with Former Worldview Producer, Gretchen Helfrich

Worldview is 25 years old this year. To celebrate, we’ve been bringing you selections from our deep archives and conversations with the people who made the show happen every day. Today, we’re joined by Worldview’s first producer, who began work on the show in 1994 and then continued on to host WBEZ’s Odyssey. She’s now a civil rights attorney and joins us to talk about how producing the show informed her own beliefs about the world.
