Never miss a show! @ symbol icon Email Signup Spotify Logo Spotify RSS Feed Apple Podcasts


Independent journalism offers incisive analysis and perspectives typically passed over by the corporate-owned media. The phrase “Speaking truth to power” is a central tenet to independent journalism and community produced media. A network of those media outlets gathered at The Media Consortium conference in Washington DC to discuss the role independent media plays in today’s contentious media landscape. Special thanks to the panelists, The Media Consortium, Jo Ellen Kaiser, Manolia Charlotin, and Paul Stewart.
