The interview was conducted in his office at The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, DC on Thursday, March 20, 2014. He talked about his editorial philosophy and vision for the Review, magazines and editors that inspired him, the past and future of A&LD, the "great divide" between editors who track changes and those who don't, what "ideas journalism" can make of our time, the (limited) usefulness of new metrics gauging how a piece is being received, what makes a good publicist, and the role of the Review vis-à-vis the academy, among other themes and "extraneous tangents."
