On this episode, I’m joined by Yanqi Xu. Yanqi is a reporter for the Flatwater Free Press in Omaha, Nebraska, the state’s first independent non-profit newsroom. She grew up in China and went to college in Beijing before getting her masters at Missouri.

Yanqi talked about her journalism origin story and about the kind of work she does at the Free Press and described the challenges of doing long investigative pieces.

You can find her work at: https://flatwaterfreepress.org/author/yxu/

Yanqi’s salute: The 19th(19thNews.org) and MLK50.org
