Dan Gediman, Barry Bingham and This I Believe

Each week Bob is joined by Dan Gediman, the Executive Director of This I Believe, Inc. to discuss one of the original essays from the 1950s radio series. This week’s featured essay is by Barry Bingham, Sr. and was recorded on stage in front of an audience at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Bingham was the long-time owner, editor and publisher of The Courier-Journal and The Louisville Times. His family’s leadership of the newspapers as well as radio and TV properties in Kentucky lead to numerous journalism awards including multiple Pulitzer Prizes. Bingham believed that being a mature adult meant accepting a full share of responsibility in life, and finding strength in God’s help and guidance. Click here to read a transcript and to hear the audio of Barry Bingham’s 1950s “This I Believe” essay.
