In this episode we look into reporting on gender and identity.
Rachael Davies, a freelance journalist who has written extensively on these issues, talks about how everyone should be learning to write without gender or identity based assumptions.
And Imara Jones, creator of TransLash Media, a story-telling platform highlighting trans voices across the US, discusses how curiosity and learning can help you tell more accurate gender based stories.
