Steve Buttry, longtime educator, journalist and friend of our podcast, died of pancreatic cancer on Feb. 19. He will be missed by the countless journalists whose careers he touched with his steadfast encouragement and enthusiasm for the future of our industry. Steve was a really nice guy. He was funny and modest.

To honor Steve's memory, we're reposting our first interview with him from the early days of our podcast. We were still figuring things out and he was happy to come into the studio and help three of his former students from American University on their strange side project.

Thanks for everything, Steve.
