Join Conversation Crossroad hosts Betty-Lynn and Garrison for their interview with Lisa Napoli, a journalist whose last staff job was on the public radio show “Marketplace.” An early chronicler of the dawn of the World Wide Web as a columnist at the New York Times Cyber Times, she has also been the Internet correspondent at MSNBC. She began her career at CNN, worked in local news in North Carolina and has directed several documentaries abut Southern culture.
Lisa Napoli was in the grip of a mid-life crisis when a chance encounter lead her to the adventure of a lifetime. Leaving behind her job in public radio and her life in Los Angeles, she moved to the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to volunteer at the country’s first youth radio station. Along the way, she found the world is a beautiful and complicated place, and learns to appreciate life in a way she never imagined.
