In part two of our conversation with Wayne Freedman we get deeper into the craft of journalism. Wayne shares the struggle to cover news in the Bay Area as crews continue to get attacked for their equipment. He talks about the Darwinian nature of a reporting career. We discuss the frustration in predicting the future of the business and the affirmation bias creating a division in the country. Just as Freedman's book should be required reading for all young journalists, this conversation is a must listen!
