Our guest today is Diana Kruzman. Diana is currently the Midwest Reporting Fellow for Grist which is a nonprofit, independent media organization that covers climate solutions.

But Diana has done a lot more than that. She also writes regularly about religion and urbanism, which includes some international reporting. Her Twitter bio asks – Journalist, or just plain nosy?

Diana talked about her upbringing – about becoming curious about journalism as the daughter of Russian immigrants and hearing stories of censorship.

She talked about the reporting work she’d done – from traveling to India for a story about sacred groves that are disappearing, and Kyrgyzstan for a piece on environmental issues– to her current work, including her interest in both chaplains and street-dumped pollution. She also discussed an article she wrote about issues that archaeologists are having with YouTube videos promoting alternative history.
