On-point and insightful

It's very helpful to hear how other journalists, newsrooms and media organizations are doing creative and important work; connecting with their communities in new ways; and approaching many of the same issues we face. The guests are inspiring and informative, and the topics are well-chosen. Great show.

A pretty great listen for journalists at all different points of their career. The sources interviewed are credible as well which makes this podcast even more top notch.
