S2E13 – The Future of Journalism Is You: A Conversation With Amy Webb
In the season two finale, we explore how the future has been part of ONA's past and present. For 12 years, futurist Amy Webb has given one of the most popular presentations at ONA’s annual conference, Tech Trends in Journalism. Her energy excites and inspires, and her ability to think through the strangest possibilities helps journalists ready for the future’s challenges. ONA on Air editor and McClatchy regional video editor and trainer Rachel Wise talks to Amy Webb about how she got involved with ONA, her mission and who will take over the Tech Trends presentation after the ONA19 conference.

S2E12 – Training Future Journalists with a Focus on Diversifying the Industry
Everyone’s path to journalism is different, and the internet and an increasingly diverse population have made those paths even more varied. J-school isn’t (and shouldn’t be) the only place where news organizations find talent. ONA on Air producer Andrea Gutierrez, who also works for KPCC public radio, chats with longtime journalism educator Michelle Johnson about supporting journalism newcomers. She has run the Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab at ONA’s annual conference for years and is passionate about training the next generation of journalists of color. We also hear from ONA19 speaker Priscilla Villlareal, better known as Lagordiloca, about non-traditional paths to journalism and how ONA can encourage people from different backgrounds and identities to enter the profession.

S2E11 – If You Could Rename ONA, What Would It Be?
In our previous episode, ONA co-founder Rich Jaroslovsky talked about how the association’s name could use an update. It was a placeholder after all — one that stuck around for 20 years! Just for fun, we sent ONA on Air producer and freelance audio journalist Ben Ellman to the ONA19 conference in New Orleans to hear attendees’ ideas for how they would rename ONA if they could.

S2E10 – The Story of ONA with Rich Jaroslovsky
The origin story for the Online News Association starts in the most relatable way: two journalists complaining about their newspaper’s corporate owners and the dismissive way journalists writing for the web were treated. In this episode, ONA on Air producer and host of the “It's All Journalism” podcast Michael O’Connell talks with ONA co-founder Rich Jaroslovsky at the ONA19 conference in New Orleans. They talk about why the association was started and what Jaroslovsky thinks is the future and challenge for ONA. Music used in this episode is by Podington Bear.

S2E7 – Can Immigrants Cover Immigration Objectively?
Should reporters from immigrant backgrounds strive for objectivity when covering immigration? This was a question that ONA on Air producer and freelancer Naina Rao has been wondering for a while. So at her first ONA conference, she decided to find answers from journalists at ONA19 who are doing just that – immigrants covering immigration. How do they think about objectivity?
