“The Angel Warrior on His Way to the Top” has one of my favorite opening moments in a Salt piece. I especially like “…. thank you and Amen. Vroooooom…..” Makes me smile every time. Take a listen. You’ll see what I mean.

But, we’re featuring this piece on the Saltcast for reasons other than the opening. We talk a little bit about finding a story and recording ambiance. But, we also tackle a tricky editorial question: If you learn something about a character in a story that is unflattering, do you put it in your story? Even if it’s so loaded it may throw off the balance of the story?? Not sure there’s a uniform answer, but take a listen to hear how producer Brooke Shuman solved the quandary…. then post your thoughts.

All hail Marconi.
