On this episode, Mark Simon is joined by The Forward editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren, formerly a longtime reporter and editor for the New York Times.

Jodi talked about making the move from The Times to an organization with a long, proud history of covering Judaism that is now a subscription-based online publication. She talked about stories they had done – from coverage of prominent issues like the presidential election to Jewish culture, including food and entertainment. She talked about the goals for the group moving forward and her hope that it will do more accountability journalism in the future.

Jodi also talked about her career – learning from mistakes and managing a career path that reached inclusion on the New York Times masthead. And she saluted two other important journalism organizations.
