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 Niven Busch. He was an American novelist and screenwriter of such works as the acclaimed film The Postman Always Rings Twice. His novels include Duel in the Sun, The Hat Merchant, and California Street. Busch appreciated the solitude of a horseback ride on his ranch, but he also valued the bustle and chaos of a subway trip in a crowded city. Busch believed these journeys allowed him to better connect with his fellow wayfarers. Click here to read a transcript and to hear the audio of his “This I Believe” essay.
