Leid Stories host Utrice Leid discusses the role of journalism in a democratic society, and troubling signs that journalism is an endangered institution.
Haiti is in a state of utter chaos, with the daily deterioration of internal order due to strife among political parties vying for power, a general breakdown of governmental systems and pervasive poverty that continues to plague most of its people.
Recently, the situation has become more dire, with predictions by Haitians of imminent national collapse.

Trump is out and Biden's in. Have you stopped the stopwatch on Biden, giving him and the Democratic Party a grace period to see how they perform on issues that matter to you, or are you keeping your options open on finding a third party more in line with your politics?

Utrice has taught me to read between the lines on stories she picks apart stories and makes you realize what’s really going on.
Perhaps the most thought-provoking political show on air. Hands-down, the one that most requires you to think. With her broad understanding of the current issues, Utrice Leid won’t simply give the answers away. But you do walk away with some of the best analysis that independent media always provides while demanding audience participation. The anti-mainstream!
Ms. Leid has quite a talent for getting her listeners to think about and analyze a situation. She offers a unique point of view, and tends to point out the not so obvious (or the obvious), that most do not see. She also feels that people need to speak to one another and not at each other. One can see that she values the art of listening. Her ‘let’s agree to disagree’ philosophy is a breath of fresh air. Love the show!
