Gene Weingarten

Gene Weingarten is so good at what he does that he’s won a Pulitzer… twice. As a feature writer for the Washington Post, Weingarten muses about whatever strikes his fancy. One of his most well-known pieces was about an experiment he set up with the violin virtuoso, Joshua Bell. Weingarten stationed Bell and his violin outside of a busy subway stop to see if anyone noticed the beautiful music he played. Hardly anyone did.  Weingarten talks with Bob about his favorite pieces from a new collection of his columns titled The Fiddler in the Subway.
