Ep. 1.09 - “If You Don’t Have a Compelling Story, People Tune it Out.” (feat. Bill Manny of Idaho Statesman)
"They appreciate that authentic conversation. There's a hunger for that kind of conversation." What does it look like if we take the shouting and the elbowing out of the dialogue and actually listen to each other? What would the news look like then? Bill Manny, the Engagement Editor of the Idaho Statesman, is trying to figure that out. He's sick of the lack of civility. Jimmy and I changed up the format: the three of us sat down for a deep conversation on storytelling and how the nonprofit sector interacts with the media.
