Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki was covering the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon at the finish line when the world around him exploded.

In the moments after a terror attack ripped through the crowd and injured more than 100 people, Tlumacki began immediately telling the story through images. One of the first he made was of 78-year-old Bill Iffrig, a Washington State native nearing the end of the race as the first bomb exploded.

Iffrig, lying on the street as first responders rushed to his side, quickly found himself as one of the iconic images of the chaos in the moments after the Boston Marathon attack. Both Iffrig and Tlumacki, in separate accounts as a runner and a journalist, gave their stories about the moment and the day's events.

Sports columnists Rick Telander and Rick Morrissey and news columnist Mark Brown sat down Tuesday afternoon for a Q&A at the City Club of Chicago on the topic of sports reporting and public policy.

On the slate were Manti Te'o, Lance Armstrong, stadium funding and ridiculous Olympic mascots, among other things.
