The View from Somewhere is a forthcoming book and podcast about the myth of journalistic “objectivity” and the history of marginalized journalists who have challenged and changed journalism in the U.S.

The book and podcast will be available in November 2019. You can now preorder the book from University of Chicago Press, and keep up with the podcast via our Kickstarter page, my twitter, or the email newsletter below.
