Host Gina Logue’s interview with Troy Gipson, an MTSU alumnus and author of “From Carthage to Oslo: A Biography of Al Gore,” first aired March 25, 2013, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org). You can listen to the program here.

Gipson, a Winchester, Tenn., native, met Gore in 1976 as Gore was campaigning for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Gipson says Gore inspired him to study political science at MTSU.
