This week we bring you a difficult but important conversation. Vanessa Grigoriadis is an investigative journalist and author of the powerful book “Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus.” Vanessa shares her thoughts on the changing rules and norms for sex and consent, and we discuss where universities are succeeding and failing on the issue.
Our Election Day episode gets appropriately political. We visit with legendary New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd and explore her unique sensibility as a long time watch dog in Washington D.C. Maureen goes deep on the Shakespearian aspects of the Trump presidency and helps us understand the context and meaning of what’s happening in our democracy.
Keila Szpaller took over the University of Montana “beat” in 2015. This Missoulian reporter and UM Journalism graduate has covered both the city of Missoula and UM during tumultuous and controversial times. In this episode we discuss her approach to reporting, sourcing, background, and what sort of stories bring joy to her work.
