Diversity Hire
A podcast about being "POC" in media. Hosted by @arjununcle & @krevinlorenzo

Hello and welcome to episode 53 of Diversity Hire. Today’s guest is Wesley Lowery, who is a journalist at CBS News for 60 Minutes and a contributing editor at the Marshall Project. We talked about the ways public humiliation can be used to create change inside newsrooms, the publishing power afforded to journalists via social media, the myth of objectivity, and what virtues journalism should instead model itself after, being profiled by Ben Smith, and much more. This episode was part of our collaboration with Montez Press! Welcome if you came upon it from there.
