New Podcast: Power in the Hands of Journalists

Can journalism cooperatives and subscription newsletters put power back in the hands of journalists? In the third episode of the podcast series Down, but Not Out, produced by CEU Democracy Institute’s Center for Media, Data and Society, the hosts, Dumitrita Holdis and Justin Spike explore this question with Maria Bustillos, journalist and co-founder of the Brick House, a collectively-owned journalism cooperative and Walker Bragman, a New York-based journalist, who discusses the advantages of publishing on Substack, a newsletter platform established in 2017 that allows writers to distribute their work to subscribers at tiered subscription rates.
