Pressing Pause: Our Body Politic is on hiatus.     |     Click here to learn more.    

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.
