In the countdown to Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia, we decided to reach out to someone who’s been covering his papacy very closely for some insight.

Sylvia Poggioli is Senior European Correspondent for NPR’s International Desk. When she spoke with WHYY’s Jennifer Lynn from Rome last week, they talked about how this populist pontiff might frame his ideas for individualistic Americans for maximum effect.
