Story at Work

Aaron Foley is no stranger to the media. He has been a journalist, a magazine editor and a frequent commentator on his home territory of Detroit. His 2015 book "How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass" points to the importance of looking beyond your own neighbourhood to consider the wider community. In 2017 he was appointed by the Mayor to be the chief storyteller for Detroit.  We talk about the challenges and opportunities of this role.
