Idra Novey sat down with NPR’s Robert Siegel to talk about her day at All Things Considered.

Novey sat in on the daily meetings for Digital News and All Things Considered, and listened to editors and producers debate the day’s news. For Novey, some of the news discussed hit close to home. One of the stories covered gas rationing in New York City, which Brooklyn-based Novey had witnessed on her doorstep that morning. “There was a long line for gas at the gas station near where I live,” she said. “It was really strange to have seen something outside my own building, and then come here and see it discussed at the news table.”
