As the year comes to a close, we’re looking back on our favorite Essential Pittsburgh stories and guests from 2014. Today we’re highlighting some of our favorite interviews with NPR personalities.

To hear the full-length audio for this story, please refer to the original post.

In November of this year, NPR Morning Edition host and former Moscow bureau chief David Greene came to Pittsburgh for a member event co-sponsored by 90.5 WESA and the World Affairs Council titled “Reflections on Russia.”

Many of those reflections were included in his new book "Midnight in Siberia," about a train journey into the heart of Russia. He joined us by phone from Washington D.C. to talk about what inspired his book.

“Russians are … anything but boring. They can be loud, noisy, enthusiastic. There’s always something happening on the train. The people watching is better than any place I could possibly imagine.”
