Former senator, ambassador and presidential chief of staff Howard Baker died Thursday, June 26, at his home in Huntsville. He was 88.

Two men who knew Baker well -- former New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici and Senate staffer Bill Hoagland -- spoke with WUOT All Things Considered host Brandon Hollingsworth. They shared their memories of working with Baker, and how his role as mediator helped Congress conduct the business of the nation.
