PINcast: Episode 2!

Public Insight Network

Today I bring you episode two of PINcast, the podcast in which we highlight noteworthy stories created by journalists working with the Public Insight Network.

This week we take a look at a series about Minnesota “outsiders” from Minnesota Public Radio, a new Tumblr blog from Oregon Public Broadcasting featuring stories about race and identity, one man’s relationship with conservative-leaning sources in an election year, and a series of videos exploring what’s behind people’s votes on the Minnesota marriage amendment.

For a deeper look into these projects, here are some links to explore:

Thanks for giving PINcast #2 a listen, and stay tuned for more episodes in the coming weeks!  If you have any feedback or ideas for stories/projects I should include in future episodes, email
