Working at the White House: Head Speechwriter Cody Keenan
This season on Working, we’re going to the White House. Head Speechwriter Cody Keenan writes and edits the President’s speeches. He takes us through his career starting as a speechwriting intern in 2008 and how a speech goes from the blank page to the teleprompter. In a Slate Plus Extra, Keenan tells us about some of the lighter speeches he’s written over the years, including one he gave himself.
