Punching Down - Episode 9
What’s it like for an independent journalist to endure arrest by the cops, low pay from employers, and annoying questions from your colleagues in the mainstream media? Allow our friend and multi-talented reporter Susie Cagle to explain, in Punching Down’s long-awaited return to your Internet Website!
Listen as Susie talks about her recent experiences chronicling Occupy Oakland, which she calls a “story of a lifetime.” Speculate with us whether Susie will risk arrest again during today’s planned takeover of a vacant building. And hear about Susie’s idea for creating an independent oasis for journalism in the “news desert” that is Oakland.
