This week on Our Body Politic, we’re giving thanks to the journalists who are changing the world around us. First, veteran journalist Maria Hinojosa spoke about creating a more inclusive newsroom as one of the pioneering Latinas in public radio. Then journalist Wendi Thomas discussed why she built a newsroom by and for locals in Memphis; and Jenni Monet shared how to decolonize our news feeds. The New York Times’ Somini Segupta talked about covering the climate crisis. And Lisa Lucas explained how a Twitter hashtag changed her career path, and her goals as a new publisher. Plus, the women behind the Guild of Future Architects joined me for the second part of our conversation on envisioning our collective future.
