Gregory Warner doesn't like to use the "I" word.
"I've had a love-hate affair with the word 'international," said Warner, who until recently was NPR's East Africa Correspondent, based in Nairobi. "...The word 'international' can often connote broccoli."
Warner doesn't think that's fair. And, like a parent determined to make broccoli more palatable by slathering it in cheddar cheese, he thinks he's come up with an enticing way to serve up news about the world to NPR listeners.
