First Person Charlottesville - Katrina Spencer
Charles Lewis: Welcome to First Person Cville — the podcast. I’m Charles Lewis, your host, and also the co-host of In My Humble Opinion from 101.3FM.
Today’s episode features writer and librarian Katrina Spencer and is based on the essay she wrote for First Person Cville called, “Public Violence, Our Trusty Companion.”
"Public Violence, Our Trusty Companion" was written following the May 2022 Uvalde shooting at Robb Elementary in Texas. The audio prepared to complement this written piece was recorded preceding the November 2022 shooting at the University of Virginia.
Katrina was born and raised in Los Angeles and has lived in Charlottesville for about two years. But her thoughts about public violence are timeless and global — they apply to everything from the Rodney King beatings in LA in 1991 to the Westgate shopping mall shooting in Nairobi in 2013. To the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017. Or bomb threats called into our local synagogue. Or recent shootings across town.
Figuring out how to deal with violence…might just be what it means to be a person right now.
In this episode, you’ll hear Katrina talk about what it’s been like to grow with public violence as a constant but unwelcome presence. Along the way, she started to notice that the news media prescribed emotions for everything from pop culture icons to mass shootings. Today, the amount of public violence and emotions she’s told she’s supposed to feel have left her overwhelmed.
A quick warning: because Katrina’s talking about public violence, some of this content might be difficult to listen to.
Katrina takes it from here, starting with growing up in LA in the early 1990s….

IMHO 01.30.2022: Dr. Kevin McDonald on UVA's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Community Partnerships Department
One thing's for sure: Dr. Kevin McDonald is a heavy hitter when it comes to challenging and changing the status quo in racial equity. With that in mind, the man has got a lot on his plate when it comes to bringing together the community of Charlottesville with an institution so steeped in racial inequity such as the University of Virginia. In this episode, the IMHO crew talk to him about his plans and the tools he will use to make this happen.

IMHO 01.30.2022: Charlottesville Tomorrow's First Editor-in-Chief Angilee Shah
On paper, Angilee Shah is an unlikely choice to be the first Editor-in-Chief for a local online news organization such as Charlottesville Tomorrow. As a journalist covering international news and as founding editor of PRI's Global Nation she has covered conflicts across the map. But dig deeper and you find someone completely devoted to the local news cause. In this episode of IMHO, hear her story and hear her plans to include more of Charlottesville's diverse community in the editorial process of Charlottesville Tomorrow.
