Episode details

Hi there, Article Clubbers! This month, we’re reading and discussing “Miranda’s Rebellion,” by Stephanie McCrummen, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter at The Washington Post. It’s a great article that explores the political transformation of a white suburban woman in Georgia and her reticence to share her new beliefs with her conservative friends and family.

Last week, I got the chance to talk with Ms. McCrummen and ask her some of our questions. She was generous and thoughtful. In our discussion, you’ll be able to tell how dedicated she is to reporting and to the craft of journalism. I hope you will take a listen!

After listening to the interview, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Did anything surprise you or change your ideas about the article?
