Episode 46 - Fuck Zuck with Julia Carrie Wong

Open in playerListen on);
A podcast about being "POC" in media. Hosted by @arjununcle & @krevinlorenzo

Hello and welcome to episode 46 of Diversity Hire.

Today we talked to Julia Carrie Wong, who is a reporter at the Guardian US. Much of our conversation focuses on Julia’s incredible reporting on Facebook’s abuses of power and oversight all around the world. If you wanted to hear about just how evil Facebook is—from its colonial disposition to its thirst for global power—this is the podcast for you. But we also talked about the state of freelance journalism, the long shadow of the Karen meme, and burning out from tech reporting. Kevin and Arjun talk about partying in the 2010s and Facebook’s role in that too.

Thanks for listening!
