Fritz Wetherbee is no stranger to milestones – he has five Emmys, an honorary doctorate, and perhaps most importantly, his own bobblehead doll.

Now he’s reached another mark – one thousand stories through eight books. Hence the title of his latest collection, “Milestone.”

Fritz Wetherbee talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about how he set the goal for one thousand stories, and why some of the stories that got him in trouble as a young man are the stories people love to hear now that he's older.
