Episode 56: Getting Acknowledged with Tristan Ahtone
Hello and welcome!
We are back from the hiatus. We talked to journalist and editor Tristan Ahtone about how badly the mainstream media covers Native issues and what can be done to make it better, how the edit a magazine like a painter, the vast and weird world of the Southwest, getting to know a community rather parachuting in for one-off reports, the cruel history of land grant universities and whether and the possibility of reparations, and much more.
Kevin and Arjun also deliver a state of the pod (we might be winding down soon and working on new projects!!!), our favorite grocery stores, why media news is so boring right now.
