The 500th Episode

For this special 500th episode of In The Thick, Maria and Julio reflect on this milestone of centering POC voices. Then, Julio and guest co-host Wajahat Ali are joined by ITT All-Stars Terrell Jermaine Starr, foreign affairs reporter and host of the Black Diplomats podcast, and Jenni Monet, independent investigative journalist and founder of the weekly newsletter Indigenously. They get into what it means to seek out and create spaces for journalists of color, the latest developments in Congress, and they look forward to the Supreme Court’s upcoming session. ITT Staff Picks: - Journalist S. Mitra Kalita reports on the need for hiring managers to holistically support women and people of color in the workplace in this joint column for Charter and TIME Magazine. - For Washington Post Opinions, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes about Representative Pramila Jayapal’s tenacity and firm stance on the infrastructure bill and reconciliation package. - The Supreme Court “is now poised to do what a mob of white terrorists never could: Stop progress,” writes Elie Mystal for The Nation on the court’s current term.
