If journalism is how we talk about our politics, and political speech is how we situate ourselves in the world, what does the recent explosion of podcasts say about the current day?

If there is one “unequivocal truth” to be deduced from reading exclusively books about journalism, it’s that 2019 is not journalism's first crisis. If we’ll allow ourselves a second — it’s probably that unequivocal truth doesn’t exist. When dealing in unequivocal truths, it’s best to stick to one.
