Ben Johnson wants to present himself as a cautionary tale, a living lesson about the perils of doping, and a truth-teller in a world where he said cover-ups were as common as cleats.
I’ll be in Chicago this Saturday for what is looking to be a fun-filled panel "Writing History at the Wall Street Journal." (More info about the American Historical Association’s Annual Meeting here.)
I’m on to talk about Monopoly, now a book in the works, and we’ll hopefully address some of the broader chatter about the relationship between history and journalism. Giddy to be sharing the stage with some of my fave reporters at a great venue for history buffs.
