We hosted a special interview I conducted around the popular and powerful television series The Wire.We then listened to a conversation I had with Ed Burns, a writer and co-producer of The Wire.  Burns is a former Baltimore City Cop and Baltimore City public school teacher. Those experiences deeply informed the script of The Wire, as his real-life stories often found their way onto the screen.
