On this episode we’re joined by Liz Robbins. Liz is currently the director of journalism partnerships for Define American, an organization whose goal is to humanize the immigrant experience in the media one story at a time.

Prior to this job, Liz was a longtime reporter for the New York Times, first covering sports and then immigration. She’s also a journalism teacher and professor and wrote a book about the New York City Marathon.

Liz talked about her career and her goal of humanizing the people in the many features she wrote. She also explained the goals of Define American and explained the day-to-day work that she is doing for that organization, including best practices regarding language and the use of anonymous sources.
