Eli Sanders -- Interviewing, narrative writing, data driven reportingNovember 17, 2017 With host Mike Dillon
A conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Eli Sanders, Associate Editor of The Stranger, Seattle's alternative weekly newspaper. His powerful, prize-winning narrative about a tragic crime in south Seattle elicited this comment from Ronnie Agnew, a 2012 Pulitzer judge: "I've never read a court story like The Bravest Woman in Seattle--never in 28 years of journalism." In this episode, Eli talks about how he approached that story, why he likes a long-form, narrative approach and also discusses the value of data-driven journalism that can illuminate everyday events in our communities.
