Welcome to RANGE
A media project about our world, our community, and how to make both significantly better than they are now.
I started RANGE as a podcast about a month into COVID. I wanted to reconnect with my roots as a journalist and really start digging into this feeling I’d had for years that media can (and should) be a force for making the world better.
I’d felt that way for a long time, but during the pandemic, I heard a lot of other people — local folks, my friends and neighbors — saying they wanted a better world, too.
History was happening, and I wanted to talk about it with people. And so I jumped in.
Then history just kept coming, and by the time the protests triggered by the death of George Floyd happened, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to keep up with it all in just a weekly podcast.
I’m adding this newsletter to try and keep up with the pace of the world. And again: not just nationally. Locally, things are moving like I’ve never seen in my 17 year career as a journalist and organizer in the Inland Northwest.
It’s a wild time to be alive. Sign up and we can navigate it together.
And while you’re here, tell your friends!
