Today’s episode launches a special collaboration series focusing on the Unmasking Isla Vista reporting project spearheaded by the Daily Nexus and KCSB. Unmasking Isla Vista is a collaborative multimedia series documenting the ways in which UC Santa Barbara and Isla Vista community members have had to adjust almost all aspects of their lives to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. On these episodes of Hot Off The Pod, the reporters behind these stories take their reporter hats off and share their own experiences and opinions on the topics.
First, we sit down with Asumi Shuda (Daily Nexus) and Jennifer Yoshikoshi (KCSB) to talk about their segment, Human Struggle. Later, Sindhu Ananthavel (Daily Nexus) and Ashley Rusch (KCSB) join us to discuss University & Students. Stay tuned for the next episode of our Unmasking Isla Vista collaboration.
