Jeff AchenThe Uptake is a nonprofit journalism organization that believes “…media should find and tell the truth without fear or favor; that citizens have the tools to report and explain events without relying on news controlled by large corporations; and that it is the duty of citizens to hold power accountable and to make government transparent to the governed.”

Executive director Jeff Achen joins host Steve Boland to talk about public support of journalism, conflict-sensitive fellowships, volunteers v. paid contractors in collecting news, and much more. Learn more about sponsoring The Uptake Institute Fellowship.
