Every journalist should listen

I work in podcasts and for a national news organization. I’ve been closely following recent news about conflicts in public media newsrooms and have always been passionate about the debates that go on ~inside newsrooms, bc I care about our role and also bc of my own identity. I dreamed of a podcast like this and was so thrilled to discover it on Twitter in June. Thanks Lewis and Ramona!

Illuminating and inspiring

Lewis and Ramona examine incredibly timely phenomena in journalism and interview people with innovative solutions. So important right now! (I also love Ramona’s Dreamboy references!)

Great contact/too much vocal fry

I read that only ‘old’ people find vocal fry irritating. This makes me sad because I’m only in my 50s. If younger people keep speaking like this I’ll have to stop listening to podcasts. This woman is terrific. I just can’t listen to her for more than 5 minutes.

Very useful and on-point media criticism

I wanted to write a review to say thanks for making this show! I’m putting together a syllabus for a media studies class at a community college and want to use all free resources (rather than a textbook). This show is perfect! I’m going to build several class sessions around episodes 1 and 2 and 3 and encourage students to keep listening.

Should be required listening for all who are in, or care about, the media

We journalists are doing no one any favors if we pretend to dwell on some ethereal plane above the matters we're reporting on. It's not that we're living in a "post-truth" world; the facts are more important than ever. It's that there can be no such thing as a neutral point of view, and we might as well lean into that, while being transparent about our commitments and biases. Lewis is uniquely qualified to guide us on a journey toward a future where journalism is more inclusive, thoughtful, provocative, mission-driven, and unafraid.

So timely! So necessary!

Wow! Is anyone else enticed by this podcast’s trailer? I’m so grateful for Lewis’ refreshing, honest, and multifaceted approach to journalism—he so beautifully breaks down the truth behind this false notion of objectivity (so mired in racism) and isn’t afraid to dig deep when it comes to intersectional politics—the type of politics we all need to be digging deeper into in order to bring about liberation for all. I, for one, can’t wait for the first episode to drop!

Neccessary & powerful conversations

I'm so grateful for Lewis's work challenging 'objectivity' in journalism. Thanks for putting together this podcast, it's a gift to all of us striving to deconstruct our biases in favor of truth seeking.
