Mark Ames joins Vanity Fair writer James Verini for an interview on the NPR radio show “Here & Now” with host Robin Young in Boston. They talk about the incredible 11-year history of the Moscow newspaper “The eXile” which was the subject of a recent Vanity Fair feature profile. Ames also talks about some favorite old themes: drugs, prostitutes, and how the sorry state of American journalism pushed him and former co-editor Matt Taibbi into increasingly desperate acts of journalistic extremism.
Listen here to the interview, which ran earlier this week.
