PRI & NPR Radio Journalist Naomi Gingold sat with me to discuss looking at America from the outside in, the dubious concept of journalistic objectivity, holding true to your ethics and ideals no matter where you are, and the varied but parallel stories she covered in both Japan and Myanmar(Burma/Yangon/Rangoon). We also enjoy a dive into her love of/obsession with Burmese Hip-Hop (and the associated, forthcoming book), understanding a people through their pop-culture, the hidden sides of journalism, how we wish the current American conversation was being handled differently, following your heart and so, so much more. Above all, this episode is smashed to the rim with a look at storytelling through journalism, that is one of the most incisive yet universal story talks to date. Enjoy them juicy takeaways!
