"Can Nonprofit News Save Our Democracy?" with Marsha Parker

Over the past several months, I've spent a ton of time attempting to understand the left-leaning bias of our news media. For those of you who do follow the news, this isn't news at all. But as a liberal, I really wanted to understand what was going on in our culture. I wanted to separate the straw from the hay, if you will.

In that effort, I interviewed a woman named Marsha Parker, who is currently the chief operating officer of the largest nonprofit news organization in California called CalMatters. She's also a storied journalist in her own right as well as former media executive. She served as the former associate Dean at the University of California, Berkeley School of Journalism and is someone I like to call a friend. She shares with me why she chose to go into nonprofit journalism and why she took the job as the chair of the board of the Institute of Nonprofit News in California.

True Thirty with Joey Dumont
True Thirty, with Joey Dumont is a podcast that discusses and debates our society's most politically compelling topics through the lens of slow journalism. Each show is investigated with a focus on narrative as well as discovery. We believe that the complexity of culture cannot be crammed into six-minute television segments, or snippets and memes on social media, where ideology and entertainment is now the priority.
On the program, you’ll hear the opinions of subject matter experts who'll explore the tangled topics of our day. Our collective goal is to help people better understand one another, not win a battle. After listening, you'll be reminded that a proper debate is not about victory, but that of inquiry, education, and viewpoint diversity. So tune in and talk amongst yourselves. You may even learn a thing or two.
