42 episodes

Each episode we interview a journalist about a longform or investigative piece that they’ve written. We cover how the journalist came up with the story idea, how much pre-reporting they did before they pitched it, what the pitch looked like, and then how they went about writing and reporting the story. The podcast is meant to serve as a resource for students, and journalists who’d like to learn more about their craft.
