Jenn White became the new host of 1A this summer, and what a summer — and fall — it's been.

There's no shortage of material for the talk show produced by WAMU in Washington, D.C.: The ongoing pandemic, the national calls for racial justice after George Floyd's killing and the 2020 election remain top of mind.

So how does the 1A team move the conversation forward, bring in diverse viewpoints and also guard against misinformation?

White spoke with MPR News host Angela Davis as part of the MPR Journalist Series.

Their conversation covered everything from the future of journalism and public radio to how public media can do a better job of covering communities of color while also diversifying its ranks.
