In The Thick on Vulture’s ’13 Election Podcasts for Every Type of Listener’
In The Thick begins the year right! We made it on Vulture! “As the global coronavirus pandemic rolls on, so, too, does the American presidential election season and its associated universe of news products covering its developments. The podcast world is not immune to this, and the subgenre of politics and election podcasts is an ever-growing one. To help you get situated, we drew up a quick guide to walk you through various shows that are suitable for listeners of every stripe,” Vulture begins.
Here’s what they had to say about our show:
If You’d Prefer Perspectives From Journalists of Color
In The Thick
Mainstream politics coverage can be particularly exhausting for people of color. Against this mostly white backdrop, In the Thick offers some reprieve. Hosted by Latino USA’s Maria Hinojosa and Julio Ricardo Varela, the show is a classic roundtable podcast. Journalists of color discuss the candidates’ latest wins and losses, enriched by a deep bench of diverse guest panelists who consistently open the political conversation.
It’s gratifying to see our politics show recognized by our colleagues in the industry. Getting voices of journalists of color is —and will continue to be— our main purpose. Diversify newsrooms you say? Got you!
