Public media organization PRX and independent journalism organization Futuro Media are expanding their partnership through podcasting, the two companies announced.
This week Maria and guest co-host Jamilah King welcome Molly Woodstock, journalist and host of the Gender Reveal podcast, and ITT All-Star Imara Jones, creator and producer of Translash Media and 2019 Soros Equality Fellow. They discuss The Afghanistan Papers, a Washington Post investigative report showcasing numerous pages of internal government documents which reveal how the U.S. intentionally misled the American public about the war in Afghanistan for the past 18 years, and how mainstream media seems to be ignoring the story. They also go over the 2020 election as it relates to the LGBTQ community and how Democratic candidates are engaging this very potent bloc. ITT Staff Picks:
- Why the Media Is Ignoring the Afghanistan Papers, from The New Republic
- In Ohio, registering LGBTQ voters takes drag queens, young activists, and big ideas, via them
- Under Trump, LGBTQ progress is being reversed in plain sight, from ProPublica
