Trust in journalists is at an all-time low, but the work of journalism matters more than ever. And traditional “objectivity” may be hurting, rather than helping. All journalists have a view from somewhere, and ”objective” journalism often upholds status quo thinking and reinforces racism, sexism, and transphobia. Host Lewis Raven Wallace was fired from the public radio show Marketplace in 2017 for saying just that. In the years since, Lewis has dug into the history of “objectivity,” who it serves, and who it excludes. The View from Somewhere tells the stories of journalists who have resisted “objectivity” and stood up for justice, and envisions new approaches to truth and integrity in journalism.

So timely! So necessary!

Wow! Is anyone else enticed by this podcast’s trailer? I’m so grateful for Lewis’ refreshing, honest, and multifaceted approach to journalism—he so beautifully breaks down the truth behind this false notion of objectivity (so mired in racism) and isn’t afraid to dig deep when it comes to intersectional politics—the type of politics we all need to be digging deeper into in order to bring about liberation for all. I, for one, can’t wait for the first episode to drop!

Neccessary & powerful conversations

I'm so grateful for Lewis's work challenging 'objectivity' in journalism. Thanks for putting together this podcast, it's a gift to all of us striving to deconstruct our biases in favor of truth seeking.
