In this episode, we explore how unconscious bias has influenced news coverage - by defaulting to favor mainstream society and failing to adequately tell the full stories of marginalized communities, including women and transgender people, people of color, and communities lower on the socioeconomic spectrum.

My guest is Keith Woods, chief diversity officer at NPR. Keith has been working for much of his career to bring these issues to light, help newsrooms face their inherent biases, and more fully cover and engage with communities that are less represented in news coverage.
