Joe Donahue and Garry Trudeau at The White Hart Inn

It was 1987 when the “Doonesbury” comic strip first imagined a Donald Trump presidential run. Since then, Trump has been a recurring character in cartoonist Garry Trudeau’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comic. His new book, “#SAD! Doonesbury in the Time of Trump,” tracks the victory, the transition and POTUS’s first 500 days.

This episode was recorded as part of Oblong Books and Music's White Hart Speakers Series.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
